I attended an opera at this old but fantastic opera house, with excellent acoustics. this encouraged me to buy a book about the history and architecture of this fantastic opera house.

The building itself is something else - beautiful, impeccably maintained and very comfortable. The theater is impressive, as the pictures show, and the presentation was excellent. It's not cheap nor easy to buy (you need to buy it as soon as the tickets go on sale or you risk not getting yours)

We had tickets for a performance and we took the time to wander around beforehand. It is absolutely stunning! If you go to Paris then I would strongly suggest you take the time to visit here. Walking up the Grand Stairway and through the Grand Foyer made for a wonderfully romantic evening, capped by the performance of the string quartet... More

We had some time in between reservations so we decided to pop into this Opera House. This was a great way to fill our time- we did not do a guided tour so we were provided a map and we able to wander around at our own pace through the designated areas. Phantom of the Opera is one of our... More

My friend and I had an hour to kill before heading to the Tower so we stopped here. The queue to get through security was long (one bag checker), and the ticket machines were broken so the queue to purchase tickets was even longer. We didn't have time for a guided tour, but you could just covertly tag along with... More

We had taken advantage of the guided tour as it was included in our Paris pass. Even though the tour guide was a little late she did take her time and I never felt rushed. Learned a lot of interesting facts of how the legend of the phantom of the opera came about. The actual building is stunningly beautiful. Was... More

Staying in Opera / Bourse

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
