What to expect

Join a unique guided tour and discover the mysteries, myths and stories of Paris' Palais Garnier.

Your guide will tell you the history of this exceptional location through the story of Erik, the mysterious man with a hideous face, more known as the Phantom of the Opera. Having made the opera his home, the Phantom knows its entire history and can recount 1001 anecdotes and other curiosities.

The short story by Gaston Leroux will thus serve as a thread throughout the visit, leading you beyond the great chandelier, stall No. 5 and the angel of the music, to reveal unsuspected splendors.
