"You absolutely must walk..." Opéra Garnier Tip by NineMiles

Opéra Garnier, Paris: 12 reviews and 12 photos


Favorite thing: You absolutely must walk throughout the Opera district -- daytime or night. So much to see and do. You'll find lots of shopping, a number of great restaurants and a ton of site to see.

Fondest memory: Our first morning in Paris was awesome. We were a bit jet-lagged, but that's the nature of the game, right? We started out by walking from our hotel toward the Louvre (hey, we HAD to see it once). We ate breakfast at a small cafe near the museum. Two things about that breakfast -- YOU CANNOT GET BREAD OR ESPRESSO LIKE THIS IN THE STATES! Awesome, awesome, awesome. I'm getting hungry and thirsty just thinking about how good that meal was.

Oh, and we miss Orangina. I'm sure we can get it here, but it's all over the place in Paris. Anyway, that was a terrific morning. Great start and an incredible vacation. I believe the photo is of Place De La Concorde. We walked there while waiting for The Louvre to begin its reduced price hours.
