I lived in Paris many years ago but never took the tour of the Opera. I recently visited, and took the tour: totally worth it! You will not be disappointed!

This is a 'must' while in Paris. The opera house is incredible inside. Try to book tickets for a performance there when the season opens.

Beautifully restored monument to Paris' golden age - well worth the time. If you can, try to attend a ballet. Either way, you will be transported to a more gentile time and more elegant place.

Do your own tour, and make sure you see into the Opera Theatre which could be missed, and look up at the domed ceiling. Be prepared for tourists who only want their photos taken in the venue.
