The fanciest of the lot is a night at the opera in Paris. If you’re lucky enough to be in the city of lights, you’ll be in the company of thousands of like-minded enthusiasts at the Paris opera house and its surrounding grounds. A night out on the town accompanied by fine dining and a well-deserved drink of choice is the stuff of dreams for many a weary traveler, albeit a hefty swaggering one at that. The aforementioned swagger notwithstanding, the best way to get there is by making friends with a lot of people at once. The above enumerated perks are no longer the preserve of the rich and famous.
