What To Expect
Feel like Christine Daaéa from the Phantom of the Opera as you explore around the majestic Opera Garnier with your knowledgeable tour guide. Built from 1861 to 1875, this impressive French opera house inspired the composition of the famous novel, The Phantom of the Opera. Known for its grandeur, this opera house features a variety of stunning neo-Baroque designs built from beautifully carved stones and impressive marble columns. Marvel at the sight of the opera's alabaster cherubs, bronze statues representing Greek Gods, plush velvet seats, ardent lighting, and its large, 7 ton chandelier made of crystal and bronze with 340 lightbulbs surrounding it.
Take a 2-hour lunch break at your own pace from 12:00 noon to 2:00 PM.
Meet up again with your guide and go shopping around Paris' famous covered passages or the les passages couverts which dates back to the 1800s. Only 20 remained of the original 130 passageways after the war. Today, these passageways are now filled with art galleries, antique shops, cafes, and restaurants. Amazingly, some of these shops have not changed for the past 150 years. Your guide will tour you around 5 of the secret passages and will help you get the greatest bargains for clothing or whatever item your heart desires. Hear stories of the passages' history and the reason why not many tourists know about this place .
