  • I find it shameful that we charge the toilet and add 50 cents to have a changing table in poor condition. 2 for that is theft.

  • The centre called "The Carrousel of the Louvre" is located in the basement of the Louvre complex. This centre dates from the louvre at the time of the construction of the Great Pyramid and the Great Rond Point where "The Inverted Pyramid" is located. It was opened in 1989 and includes more than 30 prestigious brand stores, including: The Department Store Spring, Nature and Discovery, Perigot everyday objects, leather goods maker Lancel, Le Pâtissier Ladurée, Lacoste clothing, Fragonard perfumery, etc. Restaurants are open at the intermediate level as well as banks, exchange offices and souvenir shops. In the western part and in the basement, rooms with remnants of the Old Louvre of the Middle Ages, present ancient works, with lighting highlighting their architecture. A large panel shows statues and fragments of the Arc de Triomphe du Carousel leaning against the stone-cut wall, the original ramparts of the Old Louvre, royal residence since the reign of Philip Augustus, in 1190 Finally, the underground entrance to the museum Louvre, is located at the end of the large shopping alley. The transparent "Inverted Pyramid" is located on an open square in a rotunda, at the convergence of the aisles, with its small sister pyramid on the ground. This pyramid is still in the memories of the film "Da Vinci Code ". The centre is accessible by the metro station "Louvre Palais Royal" lines No. 1 and 7 . It is open daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

  • It’s the Louvre mall so it’s all you would expect. Incase you didn’t get a souvenir inside this is another place to get one. They also have chocolate shops and high end clothing stores.
  • Beautiful underground shopping below the Louvre with an entry point into the world class Museum itself. This entry is very time saving.
