2808 FRANCE (Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur / Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes) - The Route Napoléon
The Route Napoléon is the route taken by Napoléon in 1815 on his return from Elba, where he was exiled by the allies of the Sixth Coalition. The route begins at Golfe-Juan, where Napoleon disembarked 1 March 1815, beginning the Hundred Days that ended at Waterloo. The road was inaugurated in 1932 and meanders from the French Riviera north-northwest along the foothills of the Alps. It is marked along the way by statues of the French Imperial Eagle.
