Louvre Meeting Plan

Meet your guide outside the Louvre, under the central arch of the Arc du Carrousel.

The Arc du Carrousel (shown in photo) is located outside, across the traffic circle from the main glass pyramid entrance to the Louvre. It is at the end of the Tuileries Garden closest to the museum. Don’t confuse this arch with the more famous Arc de Triomphe at the end of Champs-Elysées!

It is located in the 1st arrondissement.

If you are traveling by métro, the nearest stop is Palais Royal/Musée du Louvre (lines 1/7) or Tuileries (line 1). Both stops will give access to the rue de Rivoli. From there, you may reach the Arc du Carrousel by turning onto rue de Rohan, and passing under the arches of the Louvre museum building.

If you’re approaching the Louvre from the Seine Rive side, or the Left Bank, cross the river at the Pont du Carrousel, walking straight towards the Place du Carrousel. The Arc du Carrousel will be on your left, and the glass pyramid at your right.

Your guide will be waiting outside under the central arch of the Arc du Carrousel and will have purchased your admission tickets to the Louvre in advance.  Please do not descend into the underground mall, also known as the Carrousel.
