  • Climb the double stairway of the Grand Escalier and marvel at the splendid paintings and sculptures
  • Walk in the Grand Foyer and discover why Opera Garnier is considered as the most beautiful Opera in the world


Boasting an eclectic and ostentatious Baroque design, the Opera Garnier is one of the most extravagant representations of Second Empire architecture in France. Benefit from quick and easy access to this magnificent building in the center of Paris.

Inaugurated in 1875 and named after its exciting young architect, Charles Garnier, it is the largest opera house in Europe. You will set eyes on the writhing snakes of the bronze “Pythonisse” sculpture, before climbing the double stairway of the “Grand Escalier” (Main Staircase). Imagine the swish of crinolines as you admire the breathtaking décor and stroll through vast foyers, filled with sparkling mosaics, colorful marble columns and gold-leaf flourishes. Everywhere you look will be a feast for the eyes.

You will receive your digital ticket directly after your booking, just show it at the Opera visit entrance to enjoy your visit.
