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

    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.

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

    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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!

    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’.

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