What to expect
It was Jules Hardouin Mansart who designed Les Invalides. In particular, we owe this renowned architect the Hall of Mirrors in Versailles. Formerly a hospital and hospice for war wounded, the dome of the Invalides now houses the Musée des Armées. Admire superbly preserved armor and cannons. Your guide will tell you the story of Napoleon Bonaparte who became Emperor of all French people. After visiting the museum, the guide will take you to the church to admire the tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte.
Note that it is also possible to buy tickets for the Army Museum - Les Invalides
without a guided tour.
