Palais Garnier - Opera National de Paris is made basically from gold. The gold is everywhere, and that makes the Opera unique and respect. It is fairy and breath taking.

We reserved spots for an English language guided tour. Our tour guide was excellent, which made the experience wonderful. She led us through the experience of attending the Opera in the 1800s. The facility is absolutely beautiful.

Magnificent theatre and well worth having a visit inside even if you dont see an opera. The decoration is magnificent to say the least. Ensure you can visit the auditorium as sometimes not possible. All wonderful .

When entering you need to be scanned and then head through to the ticket counter. We used the machine but it doesn't give the option for an audio guide (that can be paid for with cash or by credit card in the main ticket counter)...More

From the building's imposing facade, to the interiors inside, An afternoon spent inside the Palais Garnier certainly guarantees a Parisian memory for the books. I came too early for the actual English guided tour, and opted instead for a self-guided tour using their Audio guide....More

After watching on television the concert of George Michael performing here, I always wanted to see it for myself. I had booked through their website tickets and a guided audio tour. Very easy to do. Having booked the tickets already we could skip the lines...More

Sitting on the stairs of the Opéra and watching the Parisian crowd was such an experience for me during my trip. I didn't go inside, but I fell in love with the building from the outside as well.

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

We were both dressed casually but properly. Given the magnificence of the place and the time it would accomodate the public I would get there no less than 45 minutes prior to the performance.

It depends. There are few limitations to wandering around the theatre but without a guide or the audio guide it will be an interesting, but less informed, experience. To get a guide or the audio guide you need a separate... More
