“My life… What a novel!”. Napoleon reflected as he was writing his memoirs. After the 10 years of the chaotic French Revolution, France was in ashes: decimated by the reign of terror, torn by a civil war, wars with Europe, financial bankruptcy and political instability. Could the Nation survive?

Why did Winston Churchill referred to him as Napoleon the Great? Travel back in time and understand how the man became a general at age 24, how he rose to power and why he crowned himself Emperor at Notre-Dame!

See where Napoleon got the lucky break of his military career; where he married Josephine, the love of his life; where they had dinner; and some of the institutions he created to modernize France. You will get a glimpse of his vision as a Head of State and the imprint he left on Paris’ architecture.

I look forward to help you (re)discover one of the most fascinating figure in history!

DETAILS: Adapted to all ages. Approx. 2hrs & 3,5Km/2Mi. Walk runs rain or shine.
