The Palais Garnier? Why not stay the night?

Airbnb are offering people the chance to spend the night at the Palais Garnier in Paris.

The “Phantom of the Opera”-themed stay – a nod to the novel by Gaston Leroux and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical – comes as tourism bounces back in Europe after several years of pandemic disruptions, with visitors from the United States arriving in France in droves since last summer.


The idea is to encourage people “to travel and dream at the same time — and raise a lot of emotions around travel,” Emmanuel Marill, Airbnb director of Europe, the Middle East and Africa told Reuters.


The Palais Garnier stay includes a music recital, dinner in an ornate rehearsal room backstage and a behind-the-scenes tour of the elaborate 19th century building, including its underground pool, the inspiration for the phantom’s lair in the book and musical.

The Palais Garnier stay will be listed on March 1 for 37 euros, also the number on the box, one of the theatre’s most prestigious, which will be decked out with antique furniture specially for the night.

All that red and gold for €37? I wouldn’t say no!
