Helpful staff. Beautifully stunning building, could stand all day looking at it and not tire of it. The bar and cafe area are hugely overpriced but that's normal in theatres

The Grand Theatre located on Place de la Comedie is really a great structure. Due to limited time, we have not reserved any tickets to see a show inside. We just took a few photos from outside and left for other tourist spots nearby.

In mid-April, there were few tours and fewer in English, and you can't step more than 2 feet into the building to have a look. On the left side, there's a gorgeous opera cafe, probably a great lunch place for dining in grand style.
