Palais Garnier

Paris, France
4.9 / 95
palais-garnier
Another name for the theater scene is the Grand Opera. Its construction began under the Emperor Napoleon III in the middle of the XIX century according to the project of the architect Charles Garnier. Several dozens of sculptors worked on the decoration of the facade, so there is no single style in the design. The interiors of the opera are made without bulky columns and props (as in other theaters), so there is a lot of space and light inside.
Address:Place de l'Opéra, Paris

Did the after hours 'mysteries' tour. Though there was nothing remotely mysterious about it, nor access to places not available during open hours, I found it enjoyable and informative. Guide was good and group not too big. The building itse.. Read more »

I had never been here. I was amazed at the workmanship that went into every detail of this beautiful opera house. Go early and get a front of line pass because there are very long lines. We spent an hour and a half but could have stayed longer. It�.. Read more »

Such a beautiful place, with wonderful guided tours and full of history and lore. There’s a queue to enter even with pre-purchased tickets and sometimes they send you to the wrong queue once inside. Make sure you are queuing in the right place .. Read more »

Most beautiful building Ive ever been to. The whole building is a piece of art from the outside to all of the inside. It is not expensive and it takes you not over 2 hours to see it. Great place to visit while in Paris

Incredible edifice with a rich history. The interior is simply amazing. Tickets are a little bit expensive, especially because the building inside is not so big itself. Young people (under 26 of European nationality) have to pay the entrance fee as w.. Read more »

I highly recommend a visit to the opera house here for any tourist. Give yourself at least two hours to be completely immersed in all the art and architecture. There are also guided paid tours but it’s not necessary. No need to book beforehan.. Read more »

This is by far one of the best experiences you can have in paris. Worth every penny!!! You can get tickets from 200-10€ (depending when you buy/where you sit). I would highly recommend going with family/friends/significant other.

Even though we paid for tickets, we could not see inside because of rehearsal. I would appreciate if they let us know before buying the tickets. So I would arrange the time when there is no rehearsal. Other than this it is fantastic place.
