    This gorgeous Palais was used as the setting for the Phantom of the Opera! Nowadays it houses the world-renowned Paris Opera Ballet. Catch a show and end the evening in the superb onsite restaurant!

    The seat are a bit tight so make sure you check the seating plan before you book. We had cat.1 tickets but were literally squeezed!amazing architecture and a very good performance, though

    Incredible architecture and scenic views from Paris. You will see lots of married people taking their pictures here. It's just beautiful. The entrance is €6 if you are younger than 25.

  • Volkan E.

    Altough Opera Bastille seems to have better programme, the historical setting of Opera Garnier should not be missed. Be careful to choose a seat that has full view of the scene; cheap seats don't

    We booked an English language guided group tour through Get Your Guide. I heartily recommend this reasonably priced tour - the Opera is very busy and tours often sell out!

    Check out this beautiful landmark. Its grand staircase is breathtaking and will have you feeling like you are in a movie! The architecture will have you in awe before you even see the opera!

    The video/audio guide is absolutely worth it. Such a beautiful building and a well done tour. Expect it to take about 45 min to 1hr

  • Bart

    The street musicians performing at the steps of the opera are quite if you're on budget.

  • Nico P.

    One of the most beautiful landmarks in Paris. Reserve a spot in one of the guided tours, you will marvel at the architecture.

    10 euro for entrance (6 euro for young people). Do not miss ballet exhibition on zero floor and stay there to see filmed performances

    Take it as red. Architect Odile Decq has created a contemporary theatrical look for the Opéra Garnier restaurant, with a spectacular mezzanine like a ‘ship docked beneath the dome’.

    Come early; enjoy the building; visit the exhibits. To attend a concert here is one of the things one must do in life, at least once.

    If you're inside, do not miss taking a picture from the open air terrace, a grand spectacle of architecture and urban design.

    A must see if you are visiting Paris. While it's pretty widely known, it's not nearly as busy as many of the other landmarks.

    The opera house's chandelier-falling incident of 1896 was the inspiration for Gaston Leroux's 1910 novel The Phantom of the Opera.

    You can't just walk in and hope to find a lake beneath the opera; there are ushers outside looking at tickets.
