Smack dab in the center of it all, the Louvre – Rivoli station has admittance to Metro Line 1 and fare zone 1. Its access point is on rue de l'Amiral de Coligny despite its name.
The station was first opened in 1900 simply as Louvre. It was given its present name in 1989 when the museum gained direct access to the station just west, known as Palais Royal – Musee du Louvre. However, it still has strong ties to the museum as it was the first station to be decorated with ancient art replicas provided by the Louvre in 1968.
Louvre – Rivoli provides access to some of the best Paris has to offer including the Louvre, Place de la Concorde and the Tuileries Garden.
It also offers a way into the prestigious world of rue de Rivoli, a commercialized street who's marquees boast some of fashions brightest up and comers as well as large chain stores including Barbara Bui, Et Vous Outlet, Diesel and Agnes b.
