My family wanted to go on this tour because of our love for "The Phantom of the Opera". But I underestimated how much French history we would learn as well. Our guide, Rita, was just fabulous! She is an entertainer as much she is a tour guide. And I learned far more than I ever expected I would learn in a simple tour of an opera house. Not to mention the facility itself is simply stunning. Just loved it!!

Try to catch a performance in this incredible place. Loved the Chagall on the ceiling, the gold leafing and the incredible frescos and wood work.

The gilded walls and ceiling are spectacular. The Chagall work on the ceiling is beautiful. Worth about 30 to 60 mins to walk through and appreciate the crafts. Just went through an unguided visit. Remember that there are security checks so if you have a mini luggage you won’t be allowed in.

The ballet was mesmerizing and original, but sitting in the Palais Garnier was an experience in itself. The Chagall mural on the ceiling is stunning, the sculpted walls- the decoration is overwhelming and is well worth going very early for the performance so that you can take everything in and not be distracted during the actual performance a person buys a ticket to see.

Well worth the trip to tour the Opera House in Paris even if you are not an Opera fan . It is beautiful building with all the costumes, art and gold.
