We just did a quick visit to the opera house. It was very opulent inside with our favourite spot being the library. It is stunningly beautiful but I did find the entrance price steep for what it is. Will I visit again. maybe.

We took a Viator narrated 90-minute tour and really enjoyed it. It was full of interesting information and the architecture and decor of the opera were amazing! We highly recommend!

Being an American and never having left my continent this building being the first place we went in Paris overwhelmed my senses! It is so large, ornate, covered in gold, marble, velvet and silk. Exquisite paintings, statues, everything. A must see in Paris!

I was in Paris last September 2018 and had a 4 day Museum Pass. Opera Garnier is NOT included in this pass. I have booked a guided tour for a Saturday at 2pm and it was great. A lot of people of course but it's worth it.
