“There are not enough words to describe it's beauty”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

It's almost impossible to describe the beauty of the Opera Garnier. This should be a definate stop on your trip.The outside of the building is breath taking in it's beauty. You have to see it both in the afternoon, and evening when it is illuminated. We were not able to take the tour because it filled up very fast in English. We did very well on our own and visited all of the floors. I couldn't stop taking pictures and for people that can not climb stairs there is a lift..

“One of the most beautiful buildings I ever seen”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

It's worth it to buy a ticket for the sheer priviledge of seeing the building itself. Gorgeous! The play was not impressive, but I would certainly go again

“impressive!!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

What to say?. Incredible. But the venues are not as great as the place. In any case, for us a glass of champagne before compensate almost everything!

“Theatre opulence”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

My husband had always wanted to see the Paris Opera and we were suitably impressed with the opulence and art work. A pity we didn't have a tour as there wasn't one in English at the time we visited. He really wanted to go backstage and see how everything worked. Also we expected to see old photos and memorabilia of early "stars" of the opera - did we miss something?

“Fabulous building”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Awe inspiring. A fabulous building that needs a professional to tour guide to really enable you to understand Garnier's thoughts. One of the great locations in Paris.
