June 20 - The moment we set foot on Paris, we had barely deposited our bags with the hotel and then we were off again.

(Hotel des Invalides
This huge domed structure was constructed in the late 17th century under the direction of Louis XIV to shelter old and wounded soldiers and includes the more recent addition of Napoleon's tomb.

Rodin Museum (Musee Rodin)
Located in this 18th-century hotel where Auguste Rodin once lived, this museum holds an impressive collection of works by this famous French sculptor.

Luxembourg Gardens (Jardin du Luxembourg)
These formal gardens, open to only royalty before the French Revolution, now serve as one of Paris's most popular destinations for relaxation.

Pantheon
This ancient church is the resting place for many of France's greatest heroes.

Arc de Triomphe
This world-famous landmark structure has served ever since the days of Napoleon as a symbol of victory for triumphant French troops returning home.

Champs Elysees
Perhaps the most famous street in Paris, this wide, tree-lined avenue is home to the city's chic restaurants, shops and boutiques.
