The Opera District is a very nice area. The Opera House is a lovely & grand structure. The neighbourhood however has many other attractions - the shopping delights on Boulevard Haussman are incredible. The restaurants, cafes & hotels in the area are also lovely. Nice area to visit.

The Opera house is stunning. It was very busy the day we were there. The area around the Opera house was clean. All around the area are plenty of shops and restaurants. You can find anything that you need in this area. Shopping and sightseeing, two of my favorite things.

Unlike some of the areas in Paris this one is incredibly clean. It is what struck me the most, as well as the very business orientated crowd that fills the streets here. Not much to photograph as a tourist other than the Opera, but there are some nice Japanese and Korean restaurants close by.

You may want to take hotels close tot this area, as there's local shopping, a lot of theatres and good food around. and the street is open in the night as well serving drinks and food.

This area has many shops as well as the big department stores- Galeries Lafayette and Printemps. Uniqlo has a 3 story store near the big department stores.

Words cannot describe what this opera house looks like. You have to visit it if you're in Paris take two hours and go through the entire facility it is spectacular. The metro has a stop so it is easy to get to. Wonderful food on the outside in a little café.

A word of warning about sitting on the steps of the Opera House. If you are on your own you may get approached by someone who makes out that they have just found a ring at your feet and then says take it - you must be very lucky. They walk off but offer to buy you a drink to... More
