Touring the Opera House was a great experience, seeing the splendor of the architecture and learning the history of its creation. We took the 2:30 afternoon tour conducted in English.
Be prepared that there was only one window at which to pay and their credit card machine routinely hiccups on non French credit cards, so have cash handy.

Grand looking building both inside and outside, excellent place for photo taking.
Just one minor issue regards left behind your ID before you can rent the audio guide.
Really? That's a bit strange. I would rather to be asked for higher rental fee for it.

It was a spotless place to visit and had a lot of fascinating things to see. Make sure you see the grand staircase with royal balconies. Check it's open before visiting and if there is a queue it moves fast. The Royal dining room as well as the grand theartre is something everyone needs to check out. I have visited the Oprea House severel times and i would visit it again-it is good value for money.

Have visited Paris many times but never been in this building, glad I rectified that this visit. This is a grand old building, absolutely beautiful inside and out. To see the backstage areas you have to do a guided tour.

Standing in front of this colossal building, you are just filled with awe, but going inside, blew my mind! Everything is so palatial, luxurious and over life sized. I recommend a tour, since there is just so much to see and know about this place. We also went to see an opera there, which was definitly a bucket list item for us.
