Useful information

If you want to visit the Opera Garnier, you may need to know that in order to prepare for the Ballet performances, the Opera may be closed on occasion. Check the opening days on the official website before planning your visit.

I suggest you to take the audioguide which is really good and totally worth the price (5€).

There are guided visits in English everyday at 11 am & 2:30 pm (adult : 17 €/ -26 : 12,50 €/ -10: 9,50 €). There’s no need to book in advance, just make sure to arrive 30 minutes before the tour to get your ticket. 

You’ll have a discount on the ticket price, if you combine it with a ticket for Orsay Museum or Gustave Moreau Museum. 

During the Covid-19 period, the opera gives you the opportunity to watch ballets online for free!
