Perhaps one of the most famous and opulent opera houses in the world, Palais Garnier - Opera National de Paris was the setting for the 1910 novel "The Phantom of the Opera,” by Gaston Leroux. When you approach the façade, look up and you'll see the 7.5-m (25-ft) Beaux Arts statue known as L’Harmonie. Today, the opera house primarily produces ballet productions, which you can attend with advance tickets. Admission to an on-site museum, the Bibliothèque-Musée de l'Opéra de Paris (Paris Opera Library-Museum), is included in unaccompanied tours of the opera house building. Be sure to admire the enormous bronze and crystal chandelier in the auditorium. You can dine in the L'Opéra Restaurant.

  • In a word, it's gorgeous! I wanted to see ballet or opera if I could, but I gave up because I only had the most expensive tickets, and i only visited it. The toilet was also gorgeous (laughs)
