Queues for the Eiffel Tower can take over an hour at busy times but this skip-the-line tour lets you breeze past the crowds and enjoy priority access. Head straight up to the second floor and listen as your guide points out the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, and Notre Dame Cathedral. Finally, continue to the top floor on your own, where you can spend as long as you like admiring the views.

Beautiful architecture at the heart of Paris. This building is definitely a highlight when visiting Paris. The surrounding are impressive but the inside even more. There’s a large avenue before reaching the Opéra, many “grand magasins” department store can be found next to it. That makes the location so convenient! This is a must to see.

Palais Garnier or is one of the most renowned and impressive landmarks located within the city of Paris. It symbolizes the opulence of the Second Empire. Commissioned by Napoleon III in the year 1861, the present-day structure of the Palais Garnier is nothing short than a luxurious architectural delight.

A trip to the Palais Garnier, whether to see the opera, the ballet, or simply take a tour, is an absolute must. I went on a whim, and it was one of the best things I did in my 3 months in Paris. The building is absolutely stunning and definitely worth a trip.

We recently booked a guided tour of Palais Garnier with the Paris Tourist Office. We arrived at 2 o'clock to find at least 50 grade school children in the rotunda all talking at the same time, which kids will do. Very very noisy! We asked our guide if he could find a quieter place to make his presentation. He refused so kept talking over the noise. We heard nothing. Way too much static information in the beginning. Would have been better to start the tour and incorporate the history and the information as we walked . We just wanted to see the beautiful building! Ended up staying with the group 10 minutes and, still not hearing anything, abandoned and did the tour on our own. Much better. Sad that Nicolas was so into following the rules that he couldn't have been more supple and helped make the tour more agreeable for his clients! The tourist office also could have staggered the groups so not everyone started at the same time. VERY disappointing!
