This opera house is a must see. The design of the building and the decor are amazing. Besides...you would not want to disappoint the phantom!

The place is just magnificent! The tour was not long (1 hour), but so interesting. The guide was super sweet. A must for music lovers, and very recommended in general.

What a magnificent building to visit. It is beautiful on the outside and inside. If you are four people or more ask at the counter for the family discount.

We had a guided tour with a very good guide who told us interesting facts and stories from the past. They told us to come half-an-hour in advance, which was a bit too early. There was a security control at the entrance, but it did...More

The building is quite beautiful so if you want a view of extremely exquisite interiors, make sure you stop in at Palais Garnier. It was a tad crowded but was worth it to see this remarkable interior. They also had some performers in period garb...More

The Paris Opera needs no introduction, this is a must-visit when in Paris. Even if you don't catch a show, you should visit the opera building itself. It's an aristocratic building with impressive architecture and a fascinating history that inspired the famed "Phantom of the...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

No. You can simply walk up and buy your ticket same day. We bought our tickets about 10:15 for the 11 A.M. English guided tour.
