We will never forget the amazing experience to be in one of the most impressing monument of Paris. Of course choose correctly your program but enjoy also the roof of paints by Chagall.

We did the 45 minute tour of the inside. Very beautiful inside and one of the grand halls reminded me of Versaille. As an American who is a fan of the Phantom of the Opera musical, this was a must see.

I missed my timeslot 3 years ago, so was very excited to be able to come back. We went on an organised, backstage tour, and having a guide made all the difference. The place is opulent and beautiful and definitely well worth a visit!

We took a guided 90 minute tour with a good English speaking guide. It is the best way to get to go into the auditorium. It is a beautiful opera house.

An amazing example of late 1870's architecture and decoration when theatre goers went to the theatre to be looked at and admired. The sweeping stairs and vast spaces to walk in and be seen must have been wonderful at the end of the 19th Century....More

and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
