And today is a special day because the Tour de France is on "la route Napoleon". This road between Golfe-Juan and the South of Grenoble is beautiful. If one day you come to France, take this road, it's beautiful and you'll love the scenery.
And do you know why it is called "la route Napoléon"? Because it's this road that the French emperor Napoleon took when he came back from the île d'Elbe where he had been exiled and marched to Paris to take the power back and become emperor... again!
