There is no other experience in Paris like the sheer decadence of strolling through the Opéra Garnier with full access from backstage to the basement to see the water reservoir and the original stage rigging from 1875. Commissioned by Napoléon III, this magnificent building easily rivals the extravagance of the Chateau de Versailles.
The legend of this building endures, having inspired Gaston Leroux to pen Phantom of the Opéra, and it is profound to have the privilege to see it from within. This experience is simply breathtaking, and without a doubt, one of the most exclusive things you can have the privilege to do in Paris.
To learn about the history of the Garnier and the fantastic era of its coming of age; to see the rehearsal room where the dancers stretch and warm up before performances, and to be able to see the underground water reservoir. This is one of those experiences to really indulge and reserve a private all-access tour you will never forget – I cannot recommend it highly enough!
