The performance I attended at Palais Garnier was exceptional. The venue is stunning, although I have some reservations about Marc Chagal's ceiling dome. Palais Garnier offers opera at its best with areal sense of occasion.

You must visit the beautiful Opera and across the street they have the Lafayette and Printemps department stores. Similar to Harrods in London and Macy's in New York. Beautiful glass ceiling and there is also an observation deck with in the store that gives great views of Paris

This is a "must see" for anyone who enjoys beautiful architecture and design. The lobby is exquisite. Despite the crowds, the painted ceilings and archways were breathtaking. The area around there is also great shopping. We had lunch at the Royal Cafe..which was also very good.

We were able to get tickets for the Balanchine on Sat. night. Incredible place - a must see/do if you can. If you can't get tickets at least walk around the exterior and see if you can sign up for a tour - the interior is jaw dropping and just magnificent.

Beautiful construction, one of those which makes you to be sure you are in Paris. If you have the chance, go for a tour on the inside, or if you have even more time, watch an opera or a ballet just like we did.
Amazing!
