Napoleon rests in an enormous sarcophagus below the dome of Les Invalides.  This picture by René Warich shows the interior of the dome with light streaming from one of the windows as onlookers view the sarcophagus (out of view) from above.

The closest Metro stations to Les Invalides are:

  • Varenne on Metro Line 13 (aquamarine blue)
  • La Tour Maubourg on Metro Line 8 (light purple)
  • Ecole Militaire on Metro Line 8 (light purple)
