Sightseeing route in Annecy

Annecy

【City description】

There is the purest lake in Europe in this town. The lake is surrounded by Alpes mountains and you can find the landscape that you want to look as long as possible. There are canals in the old area and we call this area the small Venice. You can profit the lake by walking along, but you should take a pleasure boat. You can taste reginal cheese foods at the restaurants of the old area.
