"Recently Refurbished. Looks Brand New." Opéra Garnier Tip by lohki
Opéra Garnier, Paris: 139 reviews and 308 photos
Since my hotel was very close to the Opera house I did spend some time in this neighbourhood. Sadly I didn?t have the opportunity to see a performance or take the tour? this time. I am looking forward to seeing the ceiling, painted by Marc Chagall (1964).
For such a large building I find it difficult to believe that it only seats 2000 people and the fact that underneath the building there is ACTUALLY a small lake. So if Paul Leroux didn?t make up the lake? Does that mean there REALLY IS a ?Phantom of the Opera??
Charles Garnier designed this magnificent building for Napoleon III and it was THE place to see and be seen!
It is still a great place to hang out and absorb the city and her people. Have a seat on the steps or choose a well place table at Café de la Paix across the street.
