Palais Garnier 

Built between 1862 and 1875, the Palais Garnier is considered one of the world’s most beautiful opera houses.  Designed by Charles Garnier for Napoleon III, it set the standard for other theaters. The auditorium was closed for rehearsal when we were there but the rest of the theater is well worth a visit.

The Moon Room with its infinity mirrors.
