    Palais Garnier
    Stop: 90 minutes - Admission included
    In 1860, a contest was launched for the construction of a new opera house in Paris. It was young architect Charles Garnier's project that was unanimously adopted for its exuberant mix of ostentatious and eclectic baroque architecture. 73 sculptors and 14 painters worked on it until its inauguration in January 1875. Measuring 172m in length and 124m in breadth, the Opera Garnier is the largest opera house in Europe, with the capacity to welcome more than 2000 people.

What to Expect
Make your way to Paris' Opera Garnier, where you’ll meet your guide and group. Listen to your guide talk about the Charles Garnier–designed building, one of the largest and most opulent opera houses in Europe. Step carefully over the inlaid mosaic floor of the Member's Rotunda, and then snap photos of the main staircase (Grand Escalier), covered with bronze friezes of Greek gods and goddesses. Hear about how Opera Garnier inspired the setting for Gaston Leroux’s novel The Phantom of the Opera (and, later, the musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber). Visit the impressive auditorium, and see the Grand Foyer, where patrons take a break between acts. Learn about Garnier's inspiration and his goals to make the building look like a typical French chateau. Afterward, you you can continue to explore on your own. Upgrade your tour to visit the theater after hours, which means fewer crowds and a more intimate atmosphere.

We took the tour with Nicholas, who was so knowledgeable and personable. The Opera Garnier has been restored in recent years and is incredible. The sun coming through the windows in the Grand Foyer is a sight to behold. Highly recommend; it’s breathtaking.

Matilda did a great job showing us the opera house. We enjoyed seeing Phantom of the Opera’s Box along with the baroque/3rd Empire decor and architecture. We would not have gotten as much out of the visit if we had gone without a guide as I originally considered.
