A day with Napoleon
Spend a whole, virtually private day with Napoleon visiting some of its most intimate and lesser known houses. West of Paris, the first one on the itinerary is way off the tourist track and exudes style and history. The chateau has also a strong link to Napoleon’s personal life, as his first wife, Empress Joséphine lived and died there.
The second palace will take you to the countryside, where rooms have recently been refurbished to exhibit some of the most beautiful decors from the French Emperor’s days.
Finally, this very special day will uncover a very secret place, where the biggest private collection of Napoleon’s objects can be seen in the heart of Paris!
Option: fly over Napoleon’s palace in a helicopter!
