Situated on the Left Bank in the 5th arrondissement, the Pantheon is the final resting place to France's most accomplished citizens. From philosophers to scientists, the crypt holds the remains of such greats as Voltaire, Dumas, Voltaire, Braille, and Marie Curie. While there isn't much to read or view on display apart from the coffins within the crypt, visitation traffic isn't very busy during peak seasons, photography is allowed, and general admission is reasonable at 7 Euros per adult.
