What a magnificent opera house. You don't have to be an opera lover to be wow'ed by this facility. The architecture and decoration are over the top. You get a glimpse of how the rich and famous spent their evenings.

What a lovely building. This really stands out as a wonderful example of french architecture for the Opera. It is beautiful in the day and even more remarkable in the evening when it is lite up.

We will save an inside tour or an opera for another trip but were gobsmacked when we saw the outside, ablaze with light. Well worth seeing.

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
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
