If you do a Google search on the Route Napoleon it will offer you over 40 000 searches!
According to one search, "The accepted French route was first opened in 1932 and follows the route taken by Napoléon I (Napoléon Bonaparte) in 1815 on his march from Elba to Grenoble. Napoléon had abdicated in April of 1814 and gone to Elba (history). In March of 1815, he began his journey with the intention to overthrow Louis the 18th."

There is also a "Route Napoleon" on the Via Francigena going over the Alps. Napoleon is depicted in paintings sitting on a magnificent white horse (a la Santiago Matamoros) but history tells us that he rode on a mule.
