Palais Garnier - Review

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.

  • What a fabulous place! No wonder so many other opera houses around the world were styled and designed the same. It is fabulous outside and inside with great acoustics. There is even an outside contemporary bar with modern music which just embraces new styles. Brilliant place. A must visit.

  • When built, about 150 years ago [it took about 15 years to build], it was the most expensive and opulent. It is named for the architect, who also designed the 7 ton chandelier. In addition, its fame was increased when it was the model for the "Phantom of the Opera"!! One can take a guided or unguided tour of this very impressive building [which seats about 2,000 people]-- with interesting features both on the inside and the exterior. In addition to housing the Opera it also houses [more frequently now] the Ballet as well as the Paris Opera-Ballet Museum and Library [the latter is managed by the French National Library! I hope that this Review has been helpful!

  • If you visit Paris and you cannot make it to Versailles, this is at least as beautiful as it gets if you don't have too much time either. This opera house is a lovely place to take a walk through and see some of the most beautiful interior in richly decorated Baroque style. If you have seen "Smurfs 2" you might also recognize the interior of the main auditorium. Typical of many of these beautiful old buildings in Paris, you feel like going back in time when you visit a place like this. I was also glad to be able to take a few nice photos there. Thank you, city of Paris!

  • What a stunning and magical place! I saw the Ballet which was excellent. But the building! Absolutely unbelievable. It is dripping in gold and decadence. Truly a relic of an earlier time. Well worth visiting. Don't miss the statues of famous French Baroque composers (and some non- Frenchmen who became famous in Paris) in the entry lobby.

  • The building itself and its history were fascinating - my entire family really enjoyed it. However, I can't recommended a guided tour. The tour guide was okay, but we didn't see any area that you couldn't see via the cheaper self-guided tour. The self-guided tour also has an audio guide that contains more information than we received. So definitely go, but don't waste your money on the guided tour.
