    Hotel de Invalides and Napoleon's Tomb

    by Roadquill Updated Mar 22, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The building is so massive that I would have thought that there would have been a really cool museum on Napoleon, like a comparison of his right arm bones and left arm bones. But nooooooo, there is this big porphery (looks like wood) casket, some uniform displays and some other dead guys. The nave, if that is what it is, was cool and the building was cool, but .... come on. Now I have come to find out that there are six caskets surrounding the original Napster. A few lead, Mahogany. I guess they didn't want him to get loose again.

    Unique Suggestions: Think of a kind of meat dish that would sound good with Napoleon. Like there is Beef Wellington. How about Napoleon's Meat Balls? or better yet Napoleon's Short Ribs?

    Dôme des Invalides - don't spent your money on it

    The Dôme des Invalides is a very beautiful cathedral - but that's far all. You can walk along and admire the architecture and the golden roof from the outside, but don't pay any money to see the grave of cesar Napoleon I inside. It's really expensive (about 20 Euro) and all you can see is a normal grave....

    Unique Suggestions: Stay outside and relax in the really beautiful parc. It's nice to sit here watching the scenery or feeding the birds...

    Fun Alternatives: Walk on by and head to the next place on your list!!!
