"Opera Garnier" Opéra Garnier Tip by Irato

Opéra Garnier, Paris: 139 reviews and 308 photos


The building of the opera is one of the most eccentric in the city and it meant to be. The architect Charles Garnier did absolutely everything I believe to make this place as much decorated and rich as possible. And did everything to give to the high society of those days lots of possibilities to show their money and manners. Go inside and take a look on the Grand Foyer, Grand Staircase or curtain and you would know what I mean. And don?t forget to see the ceiling painted by Chagall - magical, mysterious and magical once again.
