All about the trip
Nicknamed the "Venice of the Alps", Annecy offers a harmonious and romantic atmosphere. Surrounded by mountains, the city offers amazing views of the purest lake in Europe.
Enjoy the landscape of the French countryside during your drive on a comfortable bus. Discover the picturesque and enchanting framework of the city on a walking guided tour for an hour. Take this opportunity to snap some pictures of the iconic Palais de l’Isle, a 12th century castle that's a symbol of the town, and the dominating castle of Annecy, once the residence of the Bishop of Geneva.
Later, enjoy 2 hours of free time, walk along the lake alongside locals jogging, walking, or roller-blading in the fresh mountain air. Stroll in the lovely little streets with its endless flower-filled balconies, houses, antique markets, and handicraft shops. There is one more reason why this town is known around the world. The shopping is simply marvelous.
Annecy has one of the highest quality markets on Sundays offering various goods: clothes, chocolate, cheese, local products, and much more.
Rich in cultural activities, including museums, castles, and exhibitions, Annecy is labeled the "Art and History" town, which is so dear to the hearts of the inhabitants.
