  • Get your phantom on in the place that inspired the hit musical. Take a self-guided tour of the most beautiful opera house in the world
  • Discover the hidden nooks and crannies, see the temporary exhibition and the sweeping Grand Staircase
  • See the auditorium's famous Chagall ceiling and the 7-ton chandelier that hangs from its center

Opéra Garnier is a Parisian icon. To those in the know, this opulent opera and ballet house is as much a part of the cultural fabric of this city as Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, or the Tour Eiffel. And to everyone around the world, it's known as the setting for The Phantom of the Opera. Perhaps the most beautiful opera house in the world, Opéra Garnier is packed with history. Take a self-guided tour of this remarkable home of the music (of the niiiight).

Opéra Garnier (also known as Palais Garnier) has swinging chandeliers, a grand marble staircase leading to its Grand Foyer, and a 2,000 seat auditorium. You'll be transported to the rich elegance of yesteryear as you take a self-guided tour of this beautiful building.

Charles Garnier designed this opera house for Emperor Napoleon III, and construction began in 1862, but the project was held up by the discovery of an underground lake onsite. Tour groups aren't allowed down to the Phantom's lair, but considering how it turned out in Gaston Leroux's novel Phantom of the Opera, maybe that's for the best.

However, you will visit many hidden nooks and crannies that make this one of the largest theaters in the world (by acreage). See the impressive façade and its rose marble columns, check out the intricacies of the friezes, admire the auditorium's seven-ton chandelier and the Grand Foyer's mosaic-covered ceiling, and make sure to take in the temporary exhibitions.

Like the sweeping drama of the musical it inspired, everything you do in here will feel epic.

Mozart, a French passion (20 June - 24 September 2017)

The Palais Garnier presents a long-awaited exhibition to highlight the ties between France and Mozart. Learn about his three stays in Paris, the soprano who bought the manuscript for Don Giovanni, and how relevant the Austrian composer still is on French stages.

It was good, however the auditorium wasn't accessible and we really wanted to see the Chagall mural.

The Opera Garnier was amazing! The feeling when you enter is one of awe, very similar to what you feel when entering Versailles. Unfortunately, the main room was being used for rehearsals and the roof was closed to visitors the day we went. I would recommend asking about this before your visit. Otherwise, the Opera Garnier is definitely worth seeing!

The process to buy ticket is very simple, and the information that the ticket can be sent to your smart phone was what encouraged me to go forward and buy. Entry at the Opera was quick and easy.

Worth the admission. The inside of the Opera is majestic. Having tickets prepaid in advance saved us time and allowed us to enter right away.
