Absolutely stunning place to visit, you can easily say a masterpiece. Apart of the opera stage the arriving hall is fantastic too.

amazing guided tour

Best place I visited in Paris. Very beautiful. You can take a small bag (size of eastpack bag) but not more, check on their website what you can and cannot bring inside. Take a tour guide to have great explanation.

Even if you don't like Opera - Do the tour of the building
Nov. 2021
I am not an Opera person but the Opera houses are frequently amazing.

The Paris Opera House is AMAZING!!!

Whether you like to "glitz" or how they put them together - this one is absolutely one to do a tour of.

They have some construction going on on the outside of the building so look for the tour entrance - it is NOT at the gift shop. That is how you leave the tour.

You can do a guided tour or on your own. We did on your own and there are plenty of signs in English.

If you can't/don't do stairs....don't do this building. From the main staircase onward...there are stairs.... beautiful ones but a lot of steps.

Beautiful Interior

While not at the top of the list most people would give for Paris tourist must-do, the beautiful interior of the opera house is worth 90 minutes out of your tip.

Certainly, Garnier an amazing architect created what is most known as the traditional Opera House in Paris. Congrats to the French, always improving and maintaining this piece of art and architecture, In addition many plays to choose and enjoy

Amazingly well designed and ornate!
Oct. 2021 • Couples
This is a beautiful building designed by a youth architect with a fabulous sense of grandeur. Considering the relatively short time it took to build it is amazing ornate. Home of the Phantom of the Opera.

To me, one of the most surprising attractions in Paris
Oct. 2021
If you have little time in Paris and aren't able to visit Versailles, the Palais Garnier is the next best thing - it was literally designed to be similar to the château de Versailles, and it's very impressive. Take the guided tour or at least the audioguide, you get to appreciate it even more.
