Every little danseuse’s dream. Made even more special after Opera Garnier was featured in the animated film Ballerina. Both my kids, 11 and 7, considered our unguided visit one of the highlights of our European trip. I felt the same way when I visited in...More

We just did a quick visit to the opera house. It was very opulent inside with our favourite spot being the library. It is stunningly beautiful but I did find the entrance price steep for what it is. Will I visit again. maybe.

I was in Paris last September 2018 and had a 4 day Museum Pass. Opera Garnier is NOT included in this pass. I have booked a guided tour for a Saturday at 2pm and it was great. A lot of people of course but it's worth it.
