Palais-Garnier, Paris

Photograph by Massimo Borchi, Corbis

The opulent grand foyer of the Palais-Garnier, built under Napoleon III, dazzles. Once the home of the Paris Opera, it now primarily features ballet. The building's interior is filled with gold leaf, precious stones, frescoes, and marble.
