Opera Garnier in Paris, France
We weren't planning to stop by the Opera Garnier in Paris. We got out of the metro and instantly, we came face to face with this beautiful building. It took me a couple of seconds to realize that this was the Opera. Hearing music in the air, we approached the crowd in front of the building. A wonderful performer was singing Imagine by The Beatles and cheering the crowd to sing along with him. No wonder so many people were standing here, I told myself, the ambiance was unbelievable!
While the Opera looked fantastic from the outside, I wonder what it looks like in the inside. Probably as stunning or more. I'll leave that to my imagination, since we didn't visit the insides. I didn't even know that we could! I thought the only way we could get inside is by watching a performance, but I just went through their website and turns out that there are tours. It's a good thing to know for the next trip.
