This was part of our private tour. We were able to sit in the lower chairs and everything is original from the 17th century!!! It was only used a handful of times, unbelievable the technology they used to design!

I was amazed to be shown this very special theatre on our private tour. The history is amazing and I am so glad it has been restored to it's original beauty. I would love to see a performance here one day too.

I visited this area on a private tour, but would love to attend a performance here. It is one of the most beautiful theatres I have ever seen and wonderfully restored.

The architect had only 250 days to build this opera house, in preparation for the wedding of Marie Antoinette to Louis IV. The corners cut are visible only when revealed. It is an awe inspiring house.

This building is amazing. Every ceiling is intricately decorated and there is marble everywhere. This building rivals the Chateau at Versailles in its beauty and opulence. A must see for everyone that visits Paris.

You can see this stunning room on a guided tour of the apartments, the tour finishes here. Interestingly it is all made of wood as that gives the best acoustics, but much of it has been painted to look like marble. The area of floor...More
