A recent trip to Southern France consisted of 3 main parts. The first was Route Napoléon, the route which he used when coming back from the island of Elba to reclaim the throne. He chose to avoid the regalist Rhon valley and went for the mountains, from Cannes to Grenoble.
I did it the other way around, by car, leaving on Thursday night for a stop-over at Annecy, as far as I could get, so that the next day, after a prologue in Aix-les-Bains, I could hit Grenoble and drive down the Route.
Beside the pictures below, a more detailed account of the impressions can be found on the romanian blog, here.
