Stand before the Église St-Roch and listen to your guide. In your mind’s eye, you will see a 26-year old republican general, impassibly firing his cannons at an army of rebels.
This is Napoleon Bonaparte on October 5, 1795. The day that marks the beginning of his rise to power.
Your guide is a historian and a storyteller, whose passion is the life and times of this fascinating man. From the Tuileries Palace where the Emperor lived, to the Invalides Museum where his remains are, he will bring to life Napoleon’s tragically glorious career.
