Whole place gorgeous. Architectural masterpiece. We hired a tablet with earphones which was a personal virtual tour. The Phantom of the Opera box is great to see too. Lots of photo opportunities, some might think a little over the top but I loved it

The structure is beautiful from both inside and outside. Taking the tour was great. It would be be good to see some performance, but there was none during the time we visited. But still an amazing place to visit.

I took a tour to see the opera house after it closed to the public. It's worth it, small group, not to short, not to long. It's a must see in Paris.
