Opéra Garnier, Paris: 139 reviews and 308 photos

  Inside the Palais Garnier
by jglsongs

Spend the money and see a production at the Opéra Garnier . The other, newer opera house is the Opéra Bastille - a modern venue that may have a good list of productions but does not have the regal beauty of Garnier.

--One caveat: the cheapest seats go for 7 Euro apiece- sounds like a deal, but if you don't want an obstructed view, spend a little more. If you just care about seeing the place from the inside and hearing beautiful music and occassionally seeing center stage, then go for it.

Address: 8, rue Scribe (Place de l'Opéra)
Directions: In the 9th Arr., metro: Opéra. The opera house can be seen from many blocks away, so it will be an easy landmark.
