  • Interesting monument which was supposed to accommodate the remains of the Sun King Louis XIV and then instead now hosts the imposing tomb of Napoleon I in a beautiful red marble. To see. You can also visit the military Museum les Invalides. Interesting to visit and then a few steps from the fabulous Rodin Museum.

  • We found this tomb to be one of the most interesting and elegant buildings in Paris. It was beautiful, elegant in design and a fitting final resting place for France's great leaders. We were awed by t...  more »
  • Even if for the an or other, Napoleon I. was just an extrentrischer ruler with dictatorial trains, so he is unchanged for France a national hero and has found his final resting place here along with other French personalities. Easy to reach by metro from different directions (E.g. line 8 La Tour-Maubourg or line 13 Varenne). An impressive dome construction!

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.
