Paris' most exclusive venue for opera and dance, this opulent building is a stunning tribute to late 19th-century France. Sculptures and marble adorn the facade. The interior bursts with gilded busts and statues, multicolored marble pillars, and stunning mosaics. For one of your most elegant evenings in Paris, take in a performance of the Opera National de Paris, whose trademark is a flawless combination of opera and dance. –Kim Grant

FamilyExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • The building is mesmerizing in its architecture and design, but it's the story of the Opera's Phantom that really makes this intriguing.
  • Beneath the building in an underground lake that inspired the Phantom of the Opera.
  • Visit the architecture wing of the Musee d'Orsay, where a fabulous cross-section model of the Opera is on display, along with a large model of the neighborhood as it was in the late 1800s.
