The Palais Garnier shines. From the first look at the staircase, you know this is going to be memorable. The statues surrounding the exterior of the Opera are whimsical creations of important men of the time. The interior, done in royal red, reflects the pink...More

A stunningly beautiful building. Wasn't included in the museum pass but we went anyway and I'm glad we did. We didn't see an opera there, but just toured inside the building. Worth it!

Wow what an architectural fit by Charles Granier. It took 15 years to build. Loved the hall of mirrors and the paintings on the ceilings.

Versatile or other museum could be a better price to be. After seeing all the great buildings, Maybe you could skip Palais Garnier unless you have a show to catch. I will save time to spend more time in Lourve rather than travelling here specifically...More

We took the guided tour in English Satuday morning, it was well organized and interesting to get the background of the building. Worth seeing even if you are not an opera fan.

This is probably the best Opera house in the world. The performance hall seats and boxes along the stage and acoustics are the best. The gathering areas outside the performance hall are even more ornate and just have to be seen to be appreciated.

We did not do the guided tour and had a great experience. There was no line to buy tickets, but we went on a week day. It’s so beautiful!
