Summary of The Day: With its ostentatious Baroque Revival design, the Palais Garnier is undoubtedly one of the most extravagant representations of Second Empire architecture in France. Follow in the footsteps of 19th-century high society on this 90-minute guided tour of Palais Garnier. Conceived by architect Charles Garnier and completed in 1875, the opera house is one of the largest of its kind in Europe.
The first stop on our tour will be the Rotonde des Abonnes, or Members Rotunda, once the formal reception hall for guests of the opera. Here your guide will point out Garnier's signature traits in the rich tapestry of arabesques.
Throughout the tour, the official Opera de Paris guide will point out the pieces of note among the vast collection of paintings and sculptures housed within Palais Garnier. We'll encounter the writhing snakes of the bronze Pythonisse sculpture before we climb the double staircase, or Grand Escalier, up and into immense foyers flush with sparkling mosaics, colorful marble columns and gold-leaf embellishments.
