The Carrousel du Louvre is a shopping centre in the middle of Paris and, as its name suggests, is close to the Louvre museum so you can combine your love for culture at the same time as your passion for shopping.

This place is as popular with the local people as much as it is with tourists, so you will be able to get a real flavor of a true Parisian shopping experience. The Carrousel du Louvre is open every day of the week from 9.00 am until 10.00 pm so no matter when you take your city break you will be able to pay a visit.

You will discover a wide selection of shops from jewellery, home décor, fashion boutiques and gifts, as well as a huge food court that houses 14 different cafes and restaurants so you can recharge your batteries. The Carrousel du Louvre is also home to a massive exhibition space so it very likely that you will also be treated to some kind of event.
