  Hallways in the Opera Garnier
by TimDaoust

We ended up seeing this landmark Opera house on my first tour to Europe in 1999. Our chaperone was an opera singer and was excited to be able to see this so she dragged the rest of the group, who went grudgingly as we had other things in mind that we wanted to do. However, we did enjoy ourselves. You couldn't get into the auditorium but the entrance foyer and the hallways were dazzling enough. I personally feel we spent too much time here and should have come at a more opportune time, to see a show or something. I hope I can see this place again and bring you more pictures someday.
