    Les Invalides, Paris

    September 2, 2018 in France ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Next on the agenda for today was a visit to Les Invalides. Unfortunately a lot of the building was roped off for construction reasons but we did get to see Napoleon's tomb inside the circular crypt, under the golden dome.

    The building itself was amazing and Napoleon's tomb was huge. They certainly did things in grand style - the bigger the better. Even though we have seen a few amazing historic sites already we were still oohing and wowing over everything.

    It was a quick visit and a nice respite from the hot sun. We also enjoyed a delicious lunch at the cafe on the grounds before heading onto our next location.
