We got off at the Gare du Nord, then needed tickets as we were going to switch to the Metro, or underground. We saw no ticket booths, looking up a ...
... After our visit to the Louvre we hopped back on a bus, this time captained by the sanguine Daniel. After a short drive we arrived at Le Invalides. This former residence of 'invalides' or those injured in war, (commissioned in 1670 by Louis IX) was turned into a military museum and tomb of Napoleon from 1840 onwards. The students, in small groups led by teachers toured the museum looking at a variety of time periods (Medieval, Napoleonic, World War 1 and World War ...
