I have always passed by this building in Paris but never looked inside. Always stood few minutes in front of Opera metro station just to admire the fabulous piece of art. The day I decided to take a tour inside totally blew my mind. Such a vast amount of luxorious feeling is impossible to describe. Garnier Opera is stunningly beautiful inside and if you ever cross by that building and like it, just like I did, don't make the mistake to wait so long to go inside. You will never regret it! And if you are lucky enough, you might be able to see the opera rehearsal. I did :)

What's to dislike!!
Stunning interiors and lighting
Lot of groups though - even in January!
Would certainly go again

It's a bit of a hassle getting the tour in English - only certain days and times, but well worth it. The place is magnificent and the commentary makes the experience so much better.

Luckily I've had the chance to experience the grandeur which is this beautiful building twice - once when we toured the building and the second time when my husband surprised me with a trip here to watch the ballet for my birthday. Whilst each experience was very different both were truly special. The staircase is truly spectacular and I thoroughly enjoyed people watching from the balcony which could have amused me all day. The ballet performance it self was spectacular and sitting in such a grand setting made the experience even better. Even if you are not an Opera fan I think everyone would enjoy a tour and/or a visit to this building.
