I am taking my sister to France for her first time (we're both in our 30s) and we only have 3 days and 4 nights in Paris.
I love the Palais Garnier building, but have never seen a show there.
We are debating buying tickets to a ballet at the Garnier (3 hrs long) or buying tickets to a tour (either guided or self-guided), and are having a hard time weighing the time spent in the ballet against the experience of the show over another tour.
2 of our other 3 nights are already spoken for (evening trip to the Louvre and night at pachamama), and I am sensitive to overbooking, especially in Paris (where, imo, the best thing to do is wander, walk, and eat).
Any thoughts? Opinions?
