Subway stop right in front of it. There is a shopping center (mall) right behind it. So convenient. I didn't go it, but the gilt paint/gold leaf was really nice. Blindingly bright. Would go inside the next time.

We were in Paris for a short visit and happened to arrive at the Palace just as an English tour began, so we joined it. Our guide, Rita, spoke perfectly good English and gave us an interesting and enjoyable tour of this wonderful building. She...More

This is the last building in Paris constructed under royal order, begun in 1865 and finished in 1875, five years after France became a republic. It is a massive luxurious building, almost entirely original, except for the magnificient Marc Chagall ceiling painting. It is also...More

Opt for the audio self tour and allow about an hour to see everything. I think the entry fee is ten euros and the headset an additional five... Lots to see and admire and this really is one of the finest interiors of any building...More

It's definitely breath-taking to admire the architecture and the interior decoration and it definitely fulfill your fantasies if you're a Phantom of the Opera fan. Our tour guild was quite boring, a number of people were falling asleep during our 2 hour tour. The auditorium...More

Our first attempt to visit ended in frustration: We waited for a rather long time in the queue just to see at the end of the line a sign about the auditorium being closed because of a rehearsal. OK, but why not inform at the...More

Did the self guided audio tour and it was one of the best I have enjoyed in years (and compares favorably with the British castle audio tours). The place itself is gorgeous and included a visit to the box used by the Phantom himself. Great...More

The palace is beautiful on the outside and inside too. The palace interior is a masterpiece, with majestic gold interiors and jaw-dropping paintings on the ceilings. It was worth the visit.

We did not do the guided tour and had a great experience. There was no line to buy tickets, but we went on a week day. It’s so beautiful!
