Using our Paris Pass, we arrived early for our tour and were told that there was an English speaking tour @ 1:30 PM. We returned at the proper time, and we we were given the "whisper" headsets. The guide was terrific, and the entire building was one surprise after another. This is one of the must see sites in Paris.... More

Can’t recommend this beauty enough. Garnier’s vision and attention to every detail of this jewel is evident all over from the stunning staircase to the breathtaking Grand Foyer. The elegant and luscious auditorium convinced us to get tickets next time we visit Paris. It wasn’t too crowded the Saturday morning we visited so it was easy to linger around and... More

My husband and visited the Opera on a rainy day. When I suggested the opera, he was not interested but I told him about the reviews I had read and convinced him it was worth the trip. We were disappointed that the museum pass we purchased did not include the Opera, but I had heard so many great things that... More

The reason for our trip. My 13yr old daughter is a singer and Phantom of the Opera obsessed. When we walked to the main staircase it took my breath away! Magnificent. Out tour guide was fabtastic and really lovely. The history of the palais Garnier is beautiful. Cannot praise this place more. Highlight of our weekend.

Palais Garnier is splendid building from the 1800s. One of the real jewels of Paris, fit for all sorts of special occasions. Affortunately, the contemporary Ballet "Paul-Rigal-Lock" was pretentious. Anyway it was a fabulous and unforgettable experience

I'm brazilian so it's like going to the Teatro Municipal (Municipal Theatre). It's beautiful, if you have a time to visit it's nice. In front of it many artists play their music which usually is very good.
