Who has never dreamt of being locked up in the Palais Garnier, just like the Phantom of the Opera? Of entering behind the scenes of the Eiffel Tower? Live culture differently, this is Cultival’s credo. Cultival offers not only show tickets, but also tours of Parisian monuments and backstage tours.

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
