Little bit of a walk to the Louvre or Eiffel Tower but we did it and the area is great for shopping and restaurants. Very beautiful area.

We stayed at a Hotel within the Opera District and it was nice coming through here almost every day. There is plenty of shopping in the area especially on Bd de la Madeleine and Bd des Capucines. There is also the Galeries LaFayatte nearby. Although we found it a little too stuffed for us, it is pretty to see the... More

This is a busy place with tons of people almost all the time regardless, so be prepared. - First check out the Opera House and take some photos, grab a bite from any of the little cafe, sit on the steps and watch some performance if you have time. -Then head toward Gallery Lafayette, and check out the largest department...

The opera house is really nice from the outside and the architecture style is followed by the surrounding buildings so it blends in really nicely. There is a large shopping center around the opera house and there are many restaraunts with great food as well. When I was in the area there were musicians playing in front of the opera... More

Great location! Loads to do & see within walking distance. Fabulous if you have unlimited shopping funds (sadly we didn't!)

The Opera building is artistically amazing, the area is full of shops and people. Pretty nice location and sometimes you can see the students of the music academy playing outside the building.

The exterior is stunning but the exterior is magnificent . You must do this tour . We found the grand gallery to be mire spectacular than the hall of mirrors in Versailles. Though there was no operatic performance when we visited the ambiance was superb . Wish I had visited this masterpiece on previous visits to Paris
