Opera Garnier in Paris is much more than the most famous theatre in the French capital. With this guided tour you'll also discover its artistic jewels.
Opera Garnier Tour
Inaugurate in 1875, the Opera Garnier is a symbol of Paris in the style of the Second French Empire - an artistic and architectural movement designed to embody the empire of Napoleon III.
Once inside the building, we'll visit the different boxes and even climb in the famous Grand Staircase. Many 'ball' dresses have a design specifically thought out to climb the stops of this majestic set of stairs.
During our tour of the lavish building, we'll see such stunning spaces as the “Rotonde des abonnés” - a large, circular hall surrounded by various columns and with a beautiful mosaic tiled floor. Do you know the secret behind its construction and use?
As the tour makes its way to the gallery, you'll see the wealth of sculptures and chandeliers whose value (both artistic and financial) is almost incalculable.
the tour then finishes back at the main entrance to the Opera Garnier.
