I didn’t expect to see one of the most beautiful places I’ve been when I bought tickets online. There were these richly decorated walls, ceilings and fabrics. I loved the time inside the huge hall with mirrors and paintings. A must in Paris.

This is also called the Paris Opera or the Opera House. This magnificent building is located at the heart of Paris, you should make a stop and take some pictures. The stairs, celling and chandeliers are impressive. It is a Napoleonic building, very eclectic with...More

Great spot to see a slice of 1880's Paris. This is not a location that typically fits into a "2 days in Paris" visit but it is perfect for architecture and Guided Age buffs.
