Neighbourhood: Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal, this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is lined with the world’s best jewelers and their glittering window displays. Every other establishment has someone to open the door for you or park your car. You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops or lingering over a meal at any of its chic eateries. After all that indulgence, the Tuileries gardens provide stately respite, while theatres compete for your applause. It's a neighbourhood that draws admirers from around the world, all attracted to the luxe life in Paris.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

PROS
* Famous location pause of the Louvre and next to the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel
* Central meeting point

CONS
* Crowded
* Plenty of traffic through the streets under the arches of the Louvre and through the traffic circle
*. Plenty of cruising taxis

“ I VISITED THIS PLACE”…
… twice, once at night after finishing the Musée d’Orsay and once during the day after being at the Louvre.

There was a lot of traffic and taxis in the traffic and a lot of people too, and everyone crossing it all at different points.

WAS IT WORTH THE COST?
It was free

WOULD “I VISIT THIS PLACE” AGAIN
If and when I’m in the area

AIDVICE
* If you go to see the pyramid and the plaza and the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, you will be here and you will see it
* Watch out for cars and taxis and traffic

The classic space in the center of the Louvre with the gorgeous museum surrounding and the IM Pei Pyramid in your sight. Classic bold Paris and a pretty space for your museum visit.

This small, green area is always bustling with foot and vehicle traffic, since the Louvre is so close. It’s safe and clean, and you will almost certainly find yourself here if visiting the Louvre.

A stunning spot where the historic architecture of the past is splintered with the modern structure. This whole area exudes history and the creation of the modern facility are both sensitively realised and expertly delivered.

This is a park area in front of the Louvre, part of the whole Champs Elysees area. Statues are here, places to sit, some shade.

This is a very nice place just outside The Louvre. Great place for pictures, relaxing a bit and deciding where to go next. Beautiful surroundings and lots of food options nearby

Located in the historic, 1st Arrondissement, between, the Louvre, (palace courtyard) and Tuileries garden, quite basic, however fits in perfect with its surrounds.

Place du Carrousel is a large open public space in front of the Louvre Museum. It includes the area where the glass pyramid is located, which is the entrance to the Museum. A place worth visiting.

This square is located in from the of the Louvre Museum. You don't need to go inside or pay a ticket fee.

There are lots to see, like the glass pyramid, the building architecture and life happening all around.

FREE! Great spot to pictures
