We’d been here several times before but only seen the outside so this was the perfect time to look inside. The day was hot and it was great to be inside out of the sun. L’Opera is stunning; almost as stunning as Versailles and I particularly enjoyed standing on a balcony on the front of the building, listening to the very good singer in the square and just watching the goings on below.
