Opera Paris is a short, tight street circuit set on real roads in the center of Paris, France. The narrow streets make overtaking difficult on this challenging circuit, but perhaps the most difficult parts of this circuit include the Place de l'Opéra and Place de la Concorde.
The circuit starts at a street surrounding the Place de la Concorde, FIA's main headquarters, with the Obelisk of Luxor being a notable landmark here. From here, the circuit moves to the right via Rue de Rivoli passing through the Librarie Inter Continentale via the Rue de Castiglione, taking a left-right-right-left chicane at Place Vendôme leading to Rue de la Paix. The circuit then utilizes a series of 90-degree corners at Place de l'Opéra leading to Boulevard des Capucines and Boulevard de la Madeleine which continues to the street surrounding the Place de la Madeleine. The circuit then continues to Rue Royale before going to the outskirts of the Place de la Concorde before returning to the street surrounding it.
