Whether you're a fan of the opera or Second Empire architecture, Saturday May 9 is your chance to visit the historic Palais Garnier, the older of the two Opéra de Paris venues (access to the Opéra Bastille is already full). Just show up between 9am and 1pm for free access to all of the public areas including the Bibliothèque Musée. For more info see Tous à l'Opéra.
