Novelties with their glass roofs, structure of metal and colorful tiled floors, covered passageways in Paris were very fashionable during the early 19th century. Lit with gas lamps and heated in winter, they sheltered luxury boutiques, toyshops and cafés where passers-by were protected from the rain and cold. Walking from one to the other is an enchanting experience that your guide will introduce you to. Enjoy their quaint and cozy atmosphere, away from the noisy streets…
Later on, in the 1860s, a new urban project redesigned Paris and among its major achievements was the Garnier Opera House. One of the most amazing opera houses in the world, the Garnier Opera is impressive with its opulence and the richness of its interior décor. Discover the incredible staircase, the different areas and lounges created for the audience as well as the auditorium decorated with a ceiling painted by Marc Chagall.
