Have a guided tour of Opera Garnier. Discover Paris like you have never seen it before ! The Palais Garnier is the thirteenth theatre to house the Paris Opera since it was founded in 1669.
We propose you to enter into its history through a tour in its public areas such as the Grand Staircase which is one of the most famous features of the Palais Garnier. Built in marble of various colours, the double stairway leads to the foyers and the different levels of the auditorium. The red and gold Italian-style horseshoe-shaped auditorium comprises 1,900 red velvet seats.
The magnificent stage screen represents a drapped curtain with gold braids and pompoms. The room is lit by an immense crystal chandelier hanging below the famous Marc Chagall’s brightly coloured ceiling.
Please present your voucher at the Guided Tours counter inside the Opera Garnier, at least 30 minutes before the tour departure time. The meeting point is on the left side of the Opera, in front of 1 rue Auber: Guided tours entrance. Opera Garnier 75009
