Description

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. 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 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.

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.

4.1 out of 5

Great tour for a day where you want to come back a bit early (back around 2p). Town was gorgeous and lake. We took out the paddle boat for about 30 min. Easily could spend a whole day there but not necessary unless you want to tour the castle/island house and eat and shop etc Sunday shops closed but outside market was great. Tour guide was Maria, great tour guide, highly recommend her for tours in English.

It was an excellent independent tour. It was too short but worth it. The driver dropped us at 3:15 pm and picked up 6:00 pm. Next time i would stay for a day to explore more. Highly recommend the the afternoon tour, but it depends on a personality i love on my own so it was perfect for us.
