Description
In 1860, a contest was launched for the construction of a new opera house in Paris. It was young architect Charles Garnier's project which was unanimously adopted for its exuberant mix of ostentatious and eclectic baroque architecture. Today, the Palais Garnier undoubtedly embodies the architecture that best represents the art of the Second Empire, and stands as a symbol of the luxury and pleasures of the French capital. 73 sculptors and 14 painters worked on it until its inauguration on January 1875. Measuring 172m in length and 124m in breadth, the Opera Garnier is the largest opera house in Europe, with the capacity to welcome more than 2000 people.

Your visit will begin with the "Rotonde des Abonnes" (Member's Rotunda) which was formerly used to welcome the audience, where you will be able to discover amongst the arabesques, the unique signature of the architect. The disconcerting Pythonisse will greet you before you take the majestic "Grand Escalier" (Main Staircase), bringing you to the auditorium, the lounges and the foyers. The abundant decor, the splendor of the various foyers and the variety of materials used will take your breath away. The numerous paintings and sculptures allow the Opera Garnier to be not only a theater but also a museum at the same time.

Throughout the tour, expert and enthusiastic guides from the Opera de Paris point out the splendid paintings and sculptures that help to make the Opera Garnier one of the most rewarding museums in Paris, as well as one of its most impressive working theatres.
