Finished in 1875, it is one of the most famous opera houses in the world, in part due to it being the setting of Gaston Leroux’s novel The Phantom of the Opera (1910), which was adapted for the stage by Andrew Lloyd Webber. The lavish palatial architecture makes the magnificent opera house one of Paris’ most important landmarks. Together with the more modern Opéra Bastille, it forms the Opéra National de Paris.

Stroll the streets of Montmartre

Set atop a hill in northern Paris, Montmartre was an arty bohemian village where the dazzling white Sacred Heart Basilica towers over the city. With its winding cobbled streets and hidden gardens, including a vineyard with its own annual harvesting festival take will take place 5-9 October this year, it’s one of the most bewitching locations in the city that must not be missed.

Take a romantic night cruise on the Seine

Paris isn’t called the City of Lights for nothing. While it’s beautiful in the day, it’s even more beautiful at night. What better way to see its main monuments than sailing the Seine River on board a luxurious yacht, while enjoying a candle-lit dinner? Some boats are even equipped with cabins for guests to spend the night right in the heart of the magical city.
