Overview

Learn the ins and outs of Paris’ Opera Garnier on this guided walking tour that covers all of the highlights. As you walk, listen to your guide's commentary on the history of the building and its neo-baroque architecture. Visit the auditorium, the Member's Rotunda, the Grand Escalier, and the Grand Foyer of one of the largest opera houses in Europe. Plus, enjoy free time to explore on your own after your tour.

What to Expect
Make your way to Paris' Opera Garnier, where you’ll meet your guide and group. Listen to your guide talk about the Charles Garnier–designed building, one of the largest and most opulent opera houses in Europe.

Step carefully over the inlaid mosaic floor of the Member's Rotunda, and then snap photos of the main staircase (Grand Escalier), covered with bronze friezes of Greek gods and goddesses. Hear about how Opera Garnier inspired the setting for Gaston Leroux’s novel The Phantom of the Opera (and, later, the musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber).

Visit the impressive auditorium, and see the Grand Foyer, where patrons take a break between acts. Learn about Garnier's inspiration and his goals to make the building look like a typical French chateau. Afterward, you you can continue to explore on your own.

Upgrade your tour to visit the theater after hours, which means less crowds and a more intimate atmosphere.

A beautiful space, but would have rather done it alone

I appreciate that the tour gave me access to the beautiful auditorium and a collection of stories that I would not have alone. However at times the tour through different sections of the building felt rushed. The constant movement meant that some of the information...More

Opera house in March

Really good tour it was worth paying for the guided tour as they gave great insights throughout the opera house and it’s history is tied to the Phantom of the opera as well as the design during the Napoleonic eras
