    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!

    This is a fantastically beautiful opera house and I imagine that anything one views here would be great. Great choice of music/dance and Chagall's ceiling is worth visiting in its own right.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    Must visit if u're in Paris. Better joining a guided tour that can be purchased at the entrance for around 31 euros (2017/jan).

    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.

    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.

    Worth visiting if you have enough time and like theatre. However be prepared you will not see the scene. Ok, you will see it but it does not count :)

    Might want to check ahead. The auditorium was closed for a rehearsal. We got a glimpse but it was dark. A side lobby was being set up for an event. We shared an audio guide.

    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

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

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