  • Napoleon is entombed in this grand church. Noble and dignified architecture located at the end of a park and in a very posh neighborhood.  more »
  • Church which houses an underground tomb, the tomb of Napoléon Bonaparte. Part of the set of invalid. Alluding to the Napoleonic campaigns statues decorate the environment, in addition to beautiful stained glass Windows. Worth the visit to be charmed.

  • The dome Church is magnificent and richly decorated. At its Center stands the sarcophagus of the Emperor Napoleon all in red marble. It is a very historic place when even the life of Napoleon is very questionable. The room under the dome is very bright contrast to the rooms of the Museum of the army.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
