Palais Garnier is a real pleasure to visit; steeped in glorious history and still maintaining a Beaux-Arts feel, the building is nostalgic of a Paris of the past. Splendid to look at, the Palais Garnier is decorated with lavish marble friezes, columns and statues from Greek mythology. The ceremonial staircase is grand, opulent and made of milky white marble. Forming the backdrop of iconic works like The Phantom of the Opera, the theatre is often referred to as Opera Garnier and Opera de Paris. Catch an opera here for an unforgettable experience or just visit this extravagant edifice to feel a part of iconic architecture and history.

  • Could there be a more beautiful building in Paris? Incredible interior and gorgeous theatre. Book a box seating if you can to ensure best view and comfortable seating. I walked around everywhere for half an hour before the ballet started. A must.

  • Incredible architecture. Foyer was same style as Hall of Mirrors at Versailles but much more elaborate. I highly recommend a tour of this opera House. Also your the immediate area when you are there. Great stores in close proximity.

  • Not all the tourism guides list this place as a must see!! This is a must must see! The sophisticated look this building has is amazing! You can sit for hours inside and you will still find something new to see. The different types of marbles that form the combination of colors deserve alone the visit. If a pretty woman wants to look gorgeous should only wear a gown and go there with a normal camera and get the fantastic fancy looks if a princess. I recommend the audio guide. It could turn your sight to things you wouldn’t find out on your own. No crowd, no stress and a wonderful experience. Look for the golden room (in the photos)

  • Rich in history. I was surprised of its rich hx esp the ceiling that you would only think a bunch of squiggly design. I recommend the inside guided tour. It’s a must see/do! Love this Palais! 💜 I sat & looked around in the Opera area & just breathtaking.

  • Access to the main room is not always possible due to repetitions or miscellaneous events preparation. But there are several beautiful parts of the Palais that must not be missed. For those who like taking nice pictures be prepared for high luminosity lighting systems. For the richest ones there is a restaurant on the left of the building. Lowest seat prices is about 10 Eur but with some restrictions ...
