The Louvre is located on the Seine in Paris, with three entrances. There is the Grand Entrance, Cours la Reine and Cours Sainte-Anne. They provide access to all the galleries, collections, and temporary exhibitions.
The Grand Entrance has a double staircase across the street from the glass pyramid at the Louvre’s entrance. It is considered to be a symbol of Paris.
Cours la Reine is another famous entrance and was built in 1847. It is the largest of the three entrances and leads to the pyramid and the glass pyramid.
Cours Sainte-Anne was created in 1798 and is also known as South Wing or Carrousel du Louvre. This entrance leads to the Carrousel du Louvre, a shopping center with an automated underground parking garage.
