Unbelievable venue for royal wedding

The Royal opera was built in a relatively short time and doubles as an Opera with a sliding floor that turns it in a banquet hall. Unbelievable!

Amazing, soaring, beautiful space this is part of a behind the scenes tour. It was fantastic to sit in the chairs and listen to our guide spin tales of events in the Opera. Well worth the money and because it is behind the scenes, numbers are controlled so it was not at all crowded.

The Royal Opera of Versailles is one of the extra special ticket attractions that you may miss on your first visit - unless you're an afficianado or were helpfully tipped. Magesty does not describe the Opera. Tour with headset in English was so good and so greatly appreciated also! Plan ahead & book tickets ahead & you can attend a... More

The Royal Opera House is a magnificent structure, impressive on both the outside and inside. We took the English speaking tour, and it started promptly and was well run. Our guide was excellent with a vast knowledge of the structure and its history. The use of ear microphones allow for clear hearing when there are several groups within close proximity.... More

Opulence at it's best. This is truly a king's opera. It is very beautiful and is not to be missed. Take a tour to understand more about it.

This is one of the most incredible buildings you will ever see! It is gorgeous! Gold-lined walls and opulence don't do it justice in trying to describe the interior. It will take your breath away! This is a must see if you are in the area.

The rich were truly rich at that time. The costumes were so colorful. Not a place you would see twice. But would love to go to a concert or opera there one day.

A beautiful theater that still is in use. Really quite stunning to look at. We were able to see it as part of a guided tour provided throutgh the official Palace website. Well worth the minimal additional ticket.
