Attended PLAY ballet. Great location and great dancers. The stage is deep so you need to have seats facing it and not on the side in order to see the whole show.

I took the english guided tour of the opera. The guide was very informative, and really knew a lot of details of the place and other big theaters (she knew my city´s theater, Teatro Colon). The place is like no other place you can visit....More

I really wanted to see this Opera house as it's where Gaston Leroux set Phantom of the Opera and it did not disappoint. The building is decorated everywhere you look. It's a fascinating peek into the history of high society life in Paris.

We were very disappointed with our visit to the Palais Garnier museum a couple of years ago, but this time we reserved a perfornance. The house is certainly the grandest we've ever been to, and that includes Vienna. Over the top. Gilding everywhere. Extravagant chandeliers,...More

Didn’t know about this place until we came across it. Huge building and very beautiful. Love this huge roman type of building and this one really impressed me. Golden statues on the top and very impressive overall.

Take the tour. Self guided tours available, but the inside story is worth hearing. Our guide was a former dancer. Great value.

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in

We went there towards the end of July and it was fine. We did not have to queue to get in, and although there were obviously quite a lot of tourists, it did not feel overcrowded. It was a very enjoyable visit.
