9th & 18th Arrondissement Activities
8 Rue Scribe, Place de l'Opera, 9th
Though it's arguably most famous for being the backdrop to Gaston Leroux's The Phantom of the Opera, its real acclaim comes from the fact that it's a stunningly opulent Second Empire masterpiece. While in its first life it was home to the Paris Opera, it now hosts the Ballet. It's absolutely worth making a night of it if only to see the Grand Foyer, plus The Palais harvests its own honey on the rooftop, which is served by two-starred chef Christophe Aribert in the recently opened restaurant, L’Opera.
35 Rue du Chevalier de la Barre, 18th Arrondissement
Located at the summit of the butte Montmartre—the highest point in the city—a 234-step climb affords spectacular, panoramic views of Paris.
