VISITING NAPOLEON IN PARIS

Image

APRIL 15, 2014

Hello again from Paris!  Today I spent a major part of my day at the Museum Orsay  which was spectacular!  It is known for it’s large collection of Impressionism, Post Impressionism, Neo-Impressionism (and however far you’d like to follow that time line)  art pieces and I loved every moment.

But this posting is focused on Napoleon’s Tomb  which is very impressive.  With all there is to see in Paris, this destination might easily get bypassed but it should not. It’s   located  just a couple of blocks from my hotel or I might have skipped it myself.   As you look at my photos, just keep in mind, they could not begin to capture the enormous presence of  the Tomb and everything surrounding Napoleon’s Tomb.

 Napoleon’s Tomb  is  directly under the dome in this building.

There he  is.   By looking at the people, you can get an idea of just how large the tomb is and how tall the statues are.

That’s an  over all photo of the whole layout.

What do you think? 

Thanks for reading!…… Until tomorrow and more sights of Paris……

    I especially enjoyed Napoleon’s tomb, also! I believe the building is called Hotel Invalides. When you come home, we will have to get together and I shall dazzle you with my faded 50-year-old photos. :o)
