The Opéra Garnier or Palais Garnier, is a 1,979-seat opera house in Paris and one of the biggest in Europe. When a new opera house, the Opéra Bastille, opened at the Place de la Bastille, the Palais Garnier started to be used now mainly for ballet shows. The theatre has been a ''monument historique'' of France since 1923.
The Palais Garnier was commissioned by Napoleon III, and the civic planner Baron Haussmann was given the task to build the opera house in 1858. Charles Garnier, the architect, was chosen from a competition held in 1861.
Opera Garnier is famous for its interior as well as its exterior. In the grandiose interior, the mosaic dome ceiling paintings covering the Grand Staircase, the Grand Foyer are very impressive. There is also a small lake at the bottom of the building, which is also effective in the long construction period. This pool is also the inspiration for the (Phantom of the Opera) show.
After your Opera Garnier visit, take a 1-hour relaxing Seine River cruise tour with modern, panoramic boats with exterior viewing platforms. Discover Paris in a different way on this Seine River Cruise tour. Once onboard, you’ll enjoy a 1-hour cruise down the Seine River admiring the UNESCO-indexed riverbanks and Parisian landmarks consisting of the Eiffel Tower, Les Invalides, the Louvre Museum, the Orsay Museum, Notre-Dame de Paris, and a number of monumental bridges. See houseboats and floating restaurants as you float along and under the bridges throughout the Seine River, adding to the charming ecosystem of this very unique city.
