Napoleon Route or Hautes Alpes from Nice to Lac Annecy?

We are considering 2 driving routes: the Napoleon Route, or through Italy -west at Torino and across into the Hautes Alpes to Chambery or Albertville. We'd like to do it in 2 or 3 days. Is one more beautiful? I see some mixed comments on the Napoleon Route. Appreciate any suggestions or comments you regarding the routes. Would like to drive at least one Col. Thank you.

When are you doing this drive? Will the Cols be open? We drove a similar route last May and there was still quite a bit of snow.

We drove on D911 on the way into Annecy and it was lovely -- but that is probably true of many routes!

We will be driving in late June. I'll take a look at where to get on D911. Thank you for your suggestion!
