Opera Garnier was exceptional....a real eye dessert. Much more do-able than Versailles and not as crowded. A HIGH recommend.

Short and sweet - this is the most beautiful opera house I have ever laid my eyes on. It is in my top ten of global places to see - yes, it is THAT breathtaking. When in Paris, do NOT miss it!

As well as being a glorious setting for ballet performances, the interior is wonderful in itself. Bit of a hassle to get up the exterior stairs, so be prepared and take extra time.
