After a rest at the cafe we walked to Les Invalides, a collection of buildings containing museums and monuments, all relating to the military history of France, as well as a hospital and a retirement home for war veterans.

As we arrived rather late in the day we decided to visit the Dome of Les Invalides which we had spotted from the top of the Eiffel Tower earlier in the day.

The golden dome can be see from across the city and is the final resting place of Napoleon Bonaparte and other notable French military heroes.

The building is spectacular, with beautiful marble floors, stained glass windows and paintings across the inside of the dome.

It was the most breath taking place we visited in Paris, and the walk from Saint Germaine took us through winding roads filled with antique shops, classic restaurants and independent boutiques.
