Cross over the French-Swiss border to reach the romantic mountain town of Annecy. Learn more about the city’s history and culture as you explore its picturesque canals and charming lake with your local expert guide. Then, enjoy some free time at your leisure for more sightseeing.
Nicknamed the “Venice of the Alps,” the quaint village of Annecy lies on the shores of pristine Lake Annecy, one of the cleanest and purest lakes in the world. Follow your guide through the Old Town's colorful houses, flower-bedecked terraces, and charming cafes lining the village's network of canals. 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 Château d’Annecy, once the residence of the Counts of Geneva.
After your guided tour, enjoy the town on your own. Walk along the lake by locals jogging, walking, or roller-blading in the fresh mountain air. Cross the bridge to the gardens of the Bishop's Palace, stroll along the canal-side Quai Madame de Warens to the bustling shops of Rue de la Republique, or just take a break and unravel on the edge of the lake's turquoise waters before making your way back to Geneva.
