The Little Known Gem of Paris - Palais Garnier

Palais Garnier is an absolutely stunning and fascinating sight to see in Paris, however I am sure this is a little known gem that is often skipped over by foreign tourists. I actually came across it by accident when looking up Paris attractions on the internet.

Palais Garnier is an opera house build in the 1800's, and it is stunningly beautiful both inside and out, however the biggest draw card for this attraction is the fact that it is the Opera house that 'Phantom of the Opera' is based on! It even has an underground lake just like you see in Phantom of the Opera, however this lake is restricted to visitors. 

If you love Phantom of the Opera, you will want to stop in and have a look around this opera house. Even if you have no interest in this famous musical, it is worthwhile checking out because it is absolutely beautiful inside as you can see in the pictures below.

Have you visited the Palais Garnier yourself in your travels? If not, is this a place you would like to visit? I would love to hear your thoughts! :-)
