Napoleon's Landed, Golfe Juan

Annual re-enactment of the landing of Napoleon on his return from Elba

Featured in:

Fans of Napoleonic history won't want to miss this re-enactment of the landing of the Emperor Napoleon after his exile in Elba. On March 1, 1815, Napoleon arrived with his army, and the scene is played out again each year on the beach in Vallauris Golfe-Juan.

Many events are organised, including the battle - with Calvary - Napoleon's ship and music concerts. A mini Napoleon market has stalls selling memorabilia and there is a chance to learn more about this historical episode from experts who arrange talks over the weekend.
