Full description
Worship at the temple of opera and dance! The richness of its architecture and the interior's understated luxury make the Opera Garnier one of Paris' most fabulous attractions.

This charming private tour will lead you through every corner of Charles Garnier's magnificent gift to the city. Formed from marble and gold, it is a testament to 19th-century decadence, erected to the glory of the arts, and adorned with sensational paintings and sculptures!

The theater itself can be visited if the artistic agenda allows. There will be a break for lunch between 12:00 – 14:00.

The journey continues through some of Paris' most emblematic scenes – the finest covered passages that complement the capital with a whimsical village spirit. Each passage boasts exquisite shops, restaurants, art galleries, and cafés, some of which haven't changed in 150 years!

The tour covers 5 secret passages located on the right bank, and your guide will evoke the romantic period sharing entertaining tales of a bygone era.
