After-Hours Tour: Opera Garnier in Paris
From US$23.02
Overview
The Opera Garnier in Paris is celebrated not just for its Beaux-Arts decor but as the setting for the 1910 novel ‘The Phantom of the Opera,’ and the musical it inspired. This after-hours tour lets you admire its interior free from the main daytime crowds. Tour the grand staircase, foyer, auditorium, and more as your guide brings them alive with detail and stories of the performances held here.
What to Expect
Travel independently to the Opera Garnier, also known as the Palais Garnier, and meet your guide. Admire the splendid Baroque exterior and enter just before the building closes to the public for your guided tour.

As you explore, learn how this late 19th-century Beaux-Arts masterpiece was home to the Paris Opera and now serves primarily as host to the Paris Opera ballet. Marvel at the grand staircase with its extravagant candelabras and statues inspired by Greek mythological figures, and imagine it crowded with the beautifully dressed opera-goers of the past.

Hear how the building inspired Gaston Leroux to pen The Phantom of the Opera in 1910, and marvel at the chandelier-hung, richly ornamented halls. Enter the 2,000-seater auditorium to view its ornate balconies and swirling murals as your guide recounts the famous performances staged here.

Your tour then concludes in the foyer.
