Each year--this year from April 27 to 29--Vichy honors the emperor and his times with a weekend of Fêtes Napoléon III complete with costumed events, parading carriages, assorted exhibits and lectures, Offenbach at the stunning opera house, an absinthe tasting, a mock military battle, and architectural tours.
