Palais Garnier in Paris

One of the most beautiful buildings in the capital

Visit the Palais Garnier during your stay at the Hotel Parisiana***! From our hotel, reach the Poissonnière metro station which will take you, in only 15 minutes, close to the Palais Garnier. From there, discover this magical place of breathtaking beauty...

A true architectural jewel inaugurated in 1875

Commissioned by Napoleon III in 1860, the Opéra Garnier was designed by Charles Garnier in a mixture of several styles, with a predominance of the Baroque. The new opera house was inaugurated in 1875. Today, this monument has become a symbol of Napoleon's imperial regime.

An unprecedented harmony between sculpture, painting and architecture

On the façade, look at the columns and eight sculptures each representing comedy, drama, science, art, song, poetry, music and dance. Continue to the loggia where busts of the composers Rossini, Beethoven and Mozart are displayed. The dome is surmounted by a statue of Apollo.

As you enter the building, you will be dazzled by its sumptuous interior and its 11,000m². Most of this space is dedicated to the grand foyer with its fabulous grand staircase, made of white marble and decorated with golden lamps. The auditorium has a rather intimate character... Golden balconies, a huge crystal chandelier and a Marc Chagall painting on the ceiling create a dramatic backdrop perfect for cultural performances!

Strong symbol of culture in Paris

In addition to the opera, there are ballet performances, classical music concerts and galas at the Opéra Garnier. A great opportunity to discover the interior of the building while spending a glamorous evening! Of course, you can also visit the Opéra Garnier during the day.
