Opera district, Paris
(4.2/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Opera district contains many places of cultural, historical, and architectural interest, including the Palais Garnier, home to the Paris Opera, and its large department stores--Galeries Lafayette and Printemps. Famed for its large avenues, built by the Baron Haussmann under Napoleon III, the district once reigned as a residential hub. Now, however, it's a center for businesses, featuring many well-known banks, restaurants, hotels, and cafes. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Paris holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Opera district and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Paris is divided into districts each with definable features and different from one place to another. This area I have to say is one of the city's central characterized not only by the imposing + Theatre Garnier but also by its avenues other important squares in addition to LaFayette department stores etc. It is one of the focal points of attraction in town!

  • RoissyBus direct access to CDG airport bus stop is located next to the Opera House, the three routes pass through subway stations, Department stores and supermarkets, UNIQLO and Japan restaurants and the many tourists who always walk droves, creating a juxtaposition to the four cardinal points, from Sri from and is easy to find such ducks. Sri's handing to another person from Group also lost the wallet tucked easily into the crowd and run away. We think young women because it is a young woman who is said to often shop around people who came out from the subway get off at underground, especially in front of the Opera House the Opera square near the ground outlet Sri group, care. Do not come near anyone not in Opera around Printemps and Galeries Lafayette, Monopoli, changer, or buy we have had, the attention surrounding the dazed tourists had failed.

  • This city has many Poles, not a single Center. But the set of streets and buildings that surround the neo-Baroque and eclectic forms of the Opera really is one of the focal points of the city and not just for the beautiful creation of Garnier, but for tree-lined boulevards, cafes, Department stores (Galeries Lafayette), the wax museum and the lively Parisian flow (rather than tourists) who make shopping go to work, you go to have fun. Don't miss really.
