What you can expect

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 beautiful lake with your local expert guide on a 45 minutes walking tour. 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. Enjoy the Old Town's colourful 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.

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 relax and unwind on the edge of the lake's turquoise waters before making your way back to Geneva.
