Opera District

The Opera District may not be as famous as the Eiffel Tower, but it is not because it doesn’t shelter history or interesting places to see, but because it addresses to a special category of people, those with a taste for art in general and opera in particular.

As a result, its heart is the Opéra Garnier, located in the place de l’Opéra and setting of the famous Phantom of the Opera. Despite what the name suggests, the Palais Garnier currently hosts mostly ballet performances, but it is nevertheless impressive and unique.

The taste for art is one thing, but a visit in the area should be fun for people of all ages. As a result, older children and teenagers will certainly enjoy visiting the Musee Grevin, with its splendid wax exhibits.

Pigalle is bound to answer the women’s needs for shopping, especially as far as the prices are concerned, and to continue with the artistic tour, a stop at the Musee Gustave Moreau will certainly transpose everyone to the world of the symbolist painter who used to live there.

Those fond of heights can enjoy a splendid view of the surroundings from the roofs of the Galeries Lafayette or those of the Printemps, and, if the wind doesn’t interfere, a trip in the hot air balloon from Parc Andre Citroen will certainly make their day better.

Perhaps the Opera District isn’t as exciting and tumultuous as you would expect, but it can make a great activity for the days about to end with a taste of the wild Parisian nightlife.
