Palais Garnier - Opéra National de Paris

Recommended
Designed in 1860 by Charles Garnier, the sumptuous façade of this opera house is adorned with numerous sculptures. The interior, in which Garnier used marble of varying provenance, is of incomparable beauty: the Great Staircase and Grand Foyer are quite stunning. In the Grand Foyer, admire the ceiling painted by Marc Chagall in 1964. This renowned venue has hosted some of the world's greatest performers (Serge Lifar, Maria Callas, Patrice Chéreau etc) and is mainly used today for ballet.
