The Palais Garnier is more spectacular than you expect. The long corridor which runs along the front of the building and opens on to balconies is fabulously decorated. you'll get great pictures of the ceiling and wall art.

Step out onto the balcony to get the best view of the square below - photo opp here!

The theatre itself is actually a lot smaller and more intimate than you think but it feels opulent, and the chandelier is gorgeously impressive.

Walked around it and saw it from the hop on hop off bus. The bus is equipped with earphones and you get a good description of the opera house. It is a very pretty building and it stands out. Well worth the visit if only to view it from the outside. Good for a photo.

There were no concerts, ballets, or operas scheduled for this place while we were again in Paris, so we opted for the tour so we could at least see it. It is a spectacular building with a rich decor--as good as any other museum in Paris. Don't miss this one whether for a performance or just a tour.

As I was wondering the streets of Paris it started to rain just as I approached the Opera Garnier building (which I have admired from the outside on my previous 2 visits to Paris). So on this occasion I decided to go on and wow was I pleasantly surprised. The interior of this building is absolutely stunning and one if the best I have ever visited. Make sure you get the audio guide, the explanations make the visit even better!
