Who has not dreamt of being locked up in this Palace of a thousand secrets, such as the famous Phantom... of the Opera?

Led by a tour guide, you will be amazed by the rich architecture and decor of the Palais Garnier.

The use of Opera Garnier as a the setting for Gaston Leroux's Phantom of the Opera made it truly a symbol of Paris like the Louvre, Notre Dame Cathedral or the Sacre Coeur Basilica.

Wandering through this artistic treasure, keenly observe its silent corridors for stories retold for generations. Be amazed by its beautiful architecture, structure and superb design.

The disconcerting Pythonisse will greet you before you take the majestic "Grand Escalier", bringing you to the auditorium, the lounges and the foyers. The splendor of the various foyers and the variety of materials used will stir your interest and take your breath away.

Observe numerous paintings and sculptures, making the Palais Garnier a theater-museum at the same time.
