The architecture & marvelous interior decorations made us memorize. Occassional appearance of Ballet artist with their costume entertained us.

My wife and took the English language tour for 15 euros per and were more than satisfied. It was probably the highlight of our tip to Paris. Beautiful, historic and just plain interesting. We strongly recommend Palais Garnier and would definitely go back.

We were fortunate to have the opportunity to enjoy a ballet performance at the Palais Garnier. This architectural gem is well worth a visit even if you don't see a performance there. The Chagall ceiling, elaborate entry, views from the balcony are memorable. Suggest you...More

We did the guided tour and loved hearing about the history of the building. The fact it was initially built for Napoleon but wasn’t finished before he died in exile. The foyer was like the hall of mirrors in Versailles and the sheer size of...More

We did the guided group tour of the Palais Garnier which was one of our trip highlights. The opera house is so beautiful and intricate and the tour gave so much history and context to the building- something we wouldn't have gotten if we just...More

We visited the Palais Garnier and bought advance skip the line tickets, although if we had to wait in line it would've been very short (Thursday afternoon in June). We aren't necessarily fans of opera but during our research of sites to visit the Opera...More

We went on a guided tour (11:00 and 14:30 for the English tour). Our guide was most knowlegeable and gave us an excellent insight to the history of the building. It is possible to view the building alone and audio guides are available. Some people...More

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
