Columns building

The building is beautiful at night and the square is very animated with many performers. Could not see it inside though for lack of time.

My husband took me to watch "LA TEMPETE" for my birthday and was absolutely lovely! The place is very well kept and no matter where you are, you have a nice view of the show. I recommend to visit!

Our guide was very good. She rushed us a little through the visit but there is so much to say in just one hour. The place is magnificent.

Young guide who spoke good english. The building is magnificient inside and out. Unforunately missed the first ten minutes as the guide didn't come inside to see if people were waiting. But she apologised after and gave me and another person the beginning of the visit at the the so we didn't miss anything.

We go tickets to tour the Grand Theatre. The architecture is quite beautiful and the varied history interesting. The tour was initially unfortunately conducted only in French but given that we were practically out of time, we opted to see it. To our delight, the guide conducted both in French and English. The concert room could not be visited since... More

On our self guided to we went over to the Grand Theatre to see the beautiful building. We did not go inside but as we walked the city keep coming back to the area. Tourist building and the best wine store I ever be in a cross the street.

A guided tour is one way to get to see the interior of this famous theatre. It costs five euros and is worth it but there are several "buts". I don't know if there are any guided tours in English but as everything for a couple of days was well booked up I elected to go on the French-speaking one... More

No wonder this is one of the top places to see in a city full of history and historic buildings. I attended an afternoon concert and it was fantastic, the building is beautiful and the acoustics excellent.

Beautifully renovated theater with original colors, and interesting history. Worth doing the guided tour. We saw a modern dance ballet as well, and experienced that seats on balcony are quite uncomfortable and view easily obstructed by others. From guided tour, we realized that we would have been much better served to buy the cheapest seats on the highest floor in... More
