Opéra Garnier FAQs

One of the crown jewels of Parisian architecture, the Palais Garnier, its golden foyers with glimmering chandeliers, and painted frescoes on the ceiling, should definitely not be missed.

The Palace's Opéra Garnier – an auditorium cloaked in red velvet – is especially unmissable, and only accessible through a guided tour.

In addition to an entry ticket, you can opt in for a self-guided tour, or a guided tour with an expert.

A self-guided tour takes about 1 hour. You'll be equipped with an audio guide that will lead you throughout the palace, except the auditorium. Be sure to bring cash to get an audio guide at the entrance.

A 90-minute guided tour gets you access to everything, including the auditorium, the balconies, and as close to the stage as possible. Book a tour early in the day to avoid opera rehearsal conflicts.

Take advantage of Paris' extensive metro system and get out at Opera from lines 3, 7, or 8.

If going by RER, you can take line A and get off at Auber.

Or, take any one of these bus routes to the Opera Garnier: 20, 21, 22, 27, 29, 42, 52, 53, 66, 68, 81 and 95.

  • Witness the Rotonde des Abbonées, a circular vestibule dripping in gold, featuring depictions of Greek mythological figures
  • Palais Garnier was named a "Monument Historique" in 1923 and is protected by the French government

With 480,000 visitors per year, you'll want to book in advance to secure your spot.

About: Opéra Garnier

This 19th-century architectural masterpiece was built by Charles Garnier at the wishes of Emperor Napoleon III. It's located at the Place de l'Opera, a square in Paris's 9th arrondissement.

The insides of the Opéra Garnier boast some stunning Beaux-Arts architecture, like the 30-m high marble Grand Staircase. Its intricate interior inspired Gaston Leroux's 1910 novel The Phantom of the Opera (and thus Andrew Lloyd Webber's smash-hit musical), making this the perhaps the most famous opera house in the world.
