Join our Cultival guide for an inspiring tour of an architectural masterpiece.
Led by an experienced tour guide, you will marvel at the beauty of its architecture and magnificent opulence.
Your visit will begin in the impressive Rotonde des Abonnés, the former audience entrance hall. Admire the architect’s unique signature style amongst the arabesques. Marcello’s disconcerting Pythia sculpture will greet you at the bottom of the majestic Grand Staircase which leads to the auditorium, the lounges and foyers. The sheer scale of the interior, the magnificence of each foyer and the variety of materials used will take your breath away.
Thanks to its many paintings and sculptures on display, the Palais Garnier is not just an opera house but a museum in its own right.
