Paris Napoléon(S)


Not an avenue, not a boulevard in Paris bears the name of Napoleon. And yet ... the Arc de Triomphe, the Madeleine, the Rue de Rivoli, the facade of the National Assembly, the Opera Garnier, the Grands Boulevards, the Place de l'Etoile, the greater part of the Louvre, the Bois de Boulogne and Vincennes, the bridges of Lena, Austerlitz and many other emblematic places owe everything to the two emperors.
Napoleon I wanted to make the capital a new Rome and "to be buried on the banks of the Seine near the French people he loved so much". Napoleon III had only one passion: urban planning with the resolute ambition to clean up, air and, above all, embellish Paris! Along unprecedented and spectacular routes, discover Napoleonic Paris, its monuments, bridges, canals, parks, train stations and 54 Napoleonic metro stations ...
Fifteen complete courses, dozens of unusual walks, hundreds of anecdotes unrecognized in the footsteps of two great builders who have imagined the city that the whole world still dreams of discovering. In your turn, you will be able to shout: "Long live the Emperor!" (... twice).
