Landmark
“The Palais Garnier, an architectural masterpiece inaugurated in 1875 at the request of Napoleon III, is without doubt one of the most dazzling monuments in Paris. A world of elegance, not to be missed! As for the ceiling of the theatre, it boasts a 220 m² monumental painting by the artist Marc Chagall! The fresco’s modern and contemporary look is a striking contrast to the red and gold of the auditorium below. A real high point of the visit, this auditorium brings undeniable modernity to the building and contributes to making it an outstanding monument. A visit to the Palais Garnier can be undertaken independently or with a guide. Multimedia audio guides (on smartphone or iPad) are available to the public to learn more about the building and unravel its secrets. Ideal for exploring the opera house in greater depth: anecdotes, details and documents from the era make a visit even more enriching and provide a better appreciation of the exceptional scale of this lavish ‘palace’.”

Hotel
“Though the seeds of change had been sown as far back as the late 2000’s, Pigalle’s neighbourhood makeover was sealed in 2015, with two milestone hotel openings. Jacques Garcia, arguably the most celebrated Parisian interior architect of our times, spectacularly transformed a Belle Époque pleasure house into what is now the chic, five-star Maison Souquet hotel. Meanwhile, Romée de Goriainoff, Pierre-Charles Cros, and Olivier Bon, the trio behind the Experimental Cocktail Club (ECC), also unveiled their first hotel, Grand Pigalle. The neighbourhood was finally shedding its once-florid image and blossoming into one of the hottest nightlife destinations in Paris. Now it’s positively de rigueur among the cool Parisian bobo set (bourgeois bohemians).”
