A hidden gem in Paris!
The Opera House of Paris was built in the 1870s by the architect Charles Garnier, and it is still in use for shows and ballets. This place is a true hidden gem in Paris, very often overlooked by visitors coming for the first time.
Let's discover together why this Opera house was so important when it was built, and how it withstood time until today.
You will admire the beautiful Grand Staircase (the real key element here), the auditorium with the great ceiling painted by Marc Chagall, and the Avant-Foyer, covered with mosaics.
The private tour will also give you an opportunity to enjoy a great view on the avenue from the Loggia, and discover all the secrets and legends about the Opera!
Why do I love leading this tour?
"I like how the building of the Opera House is a real show in itself, and visiting the Palais Garnier is like travelling to a different time, 150 years ago!"
This private tour to the Palais Garnier can be combined with a walking tour of the covered galleries, or a visit to the Grands Magasins, like Galeries Lafayette or Printemps.
The Opera House "Garnier" is opened every day from 10:00am to 4:30pm, except for exceptional closures.
The auditorium can only be seen from a box, and access may be restricted or forbidden due to technical and/or artistic reasons.
The Opera House is accessible to people with restricted mobility, as there are elevators leading to the different areas of the building, and some benches to sit regularly if needed. Only the temporary exhibitions are not accessible.
