NAPOLEON ROAD

The Route Napoleon is the route taken by Napoleon in 1815 on his return from Elba. 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.

LAVENDER FIELDS

Somewhere, somewhere, ..., there are beautiful lavender fields which look just like one of the Province postcards. It's hidden from touristic routes and we know where they are! Don't miss this opportunity of discovering and tasting the Provence!

SISTERON

Sisteron is sometimes called the "Gateway to Provence" because it is in a narrow gap between two long mountain ridges. This is why the place was chosen to built an impressive fort and has for many centuries been subject to military battles. The fort features some great architectural designs. To not miss! It is definitely off the beaten track attraction!

CHAMONIX-MONT-BLANC

Discover Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, one of the most famous ski and alpinist centre in the World, home of the first Winter Olympic Games in 1924. Discover the Aiguille du Midi pic (by the cable car) from where you'll admire the Mont-Blanc summit and a 360 degree view of the French, Italian and Swiss Alps. It's breathtaking. Take the mountain train to the Mer de Glace, the glacier. (The cable car to Aiguille du Midi and the train to la Mer de Glace are our suggestions for visiting and not included in the price of this tour).
