Opera Garnier, Paris
Having never been able to catch a performance here, it was great to take the guided tour around the opera and get a chance to admire the intricate and ornate architecture. From the carved wooden doors to the colourful painted ceilings, and the box forever reserved for the Phantom of the Opera, everything was cool to see. Plus, we were lucky enough to have a very animated history lecturer as our guide, so the whole tour was just fun.
This was not just another item to check off the list; hopefully next time we’re in Paris, we’ll be able to enjoy a beautiful performance on stage too.
