It happened in 2022

As we celebrated in 2021 the bicentenary of Napoleon's death, the 10th edition of La Nuit aux Invalides offers you the opportunity to go back in time with the show Napoleon, the Flight of the Eagle**!

Rediscover the life of this major figure in French history, admired by some and reviled by others, who shaped the civil and military institutions of today's France.

A totally immersive experience

Unprecedented technology projected onto the magnificently renovated façades of the Hôtel des Invalides, 360° sound, and the latest generation of 4K laser projectors will take you on a journey into the Napoleonic legend, offering you an immersive experience unlike any other. 45 minutes of breathtaking entertainment and storytelling for all to enjoy!

Extend your evening and the show with a visit to the dome under which the emperor Napoleon I lies in a magnificent red quartzite tomb nearly 4 metres long and more than 2 metres wide, set on a green granite base. A nocturnal walk that will also lead you to meet Vauban, Marshals Lyautey and Foch, Napoleon II, known as l'Aiglon, Napoleon's son, Joseph and Jérome Bonaparte and many others.

A sensorial experience and a plunge into the great History not to be missed!
