Book a stay in Paris at the historic Palais Garner that served as the popular backdrop for the infamous musical The Phantom of the Opera.
The iconic story of The Phantom of the Opera has captured the imaginations of audiences for decades. The popular novel written by French author Gaston Leroux narrates the tale of a mysterious and marred musical prodigy who haunts the Paris Opera House and falls madly in love with a beautiful soprano. The novel later served as an inspiration for several adaptations, including some of the most spectacular, longest-running musicals. So, if you’re a fan of the novel or just a curious history connoisseur on a mission to explore age-old classics, then you’ll be ecstatic to learn that you can now rent the very theatre that inspired the gothic novel on Airbnb. The Palais Garnier, located in Paris, France, served as the fictional backdrop for Leroux’s epochal tale and is now available for rent as part of Airbnb’s “Night At” series.

Inaugurated in 1875, it is widely considered one of the most beautiful buildings in Paris, known for its grand staircase, ornate balconies and beautifully intricate ceiling.
