The guided tour was fantastic. We were even brought into the auditorium and then allowed to wander on our own after the tour. Great place to take plenty of beautiful photos!
Palais Garnier is such a stunning theatre that it's worth going just to spend a few hours inside. The theatre inside and main stage are absolutely beautiful and grand. We could not take our eyes off the ceiling painted by Chagall. The opera Giulio Cesare was amazing and the cast was Superb. Bravo!!! We are definitely going back on our... More
This building is definitely worth seeing, I actually thought it was more spectacular than Versailles! We saw a ballet this past November and though we weren't blown away with the performance, it was worth the ticket just to see the inside of the theatre and have the experience. I was surprised that patrons were allowed to take photos inside of... More
If you are in Paris a visit at l'Opera Garnier is a must. Superbe building with a beutiful " Grand foyer" and as well a very good restaurant at the back of the building. I can only recommend.
The building is remarkable as indicated by other reviewers. We went to see 'La Clemenza di Tito' (Mozart) which was excellent. The trick for tickets is to book early online and print them off at home. For only 25 euros we sat in the rear chairs in a box on the 4th level (there are elevators!) and the view of... More
We booked a guided tour in the old opera house. The guide spoke perfectly english and could lead us through the main rooms of the opra house and tell stories and facts about the buiding and to use of it through the centuries. It was a perfect experience

We did get a peak of the 'loge' of the phantom... More
I went to see the opera and this is the most beautiful thing I have seen in Paris! Don't miss going to the opera even if you come to Paris for a few days you won't regret it at all!
We turned up in the hope of being able to do an unguided tour which we did. The interior of the building is incredible; magnificently decorated salons, stairways and the theatre itself. Will have to treat ourselves to a performance on a future visit to Paris.
I wish this site was among those on the Paris Museum Pass…but you do have to pay for the privilege of wandering through all the public spaces (photography allowed) and absorbing the ornate splendor. The small museum has models of sets from long ago productions. Try to attach yourself to a tour and get into one of the boxes to... More
