Venice of the Alps
The canals is in Annecy helped earn the medieval town the nickname the Venice of the Alps. Built around a 14th-century château, it is dissected by many small canals and streams running out of the wonderfully azure-colored Lac Annecy. Just north of the French Alps, this capital of the Haute-Savoie department in the Rhône-Alpes region has plenty freshwater activities. For fun, you can swim, row, or sail around the lake by renting a boat, hike on the mountain trails around the city, and bike around the lake. Located on the numerous pedestrian-only byways that weave the city and river together, you can shop at distinct boutiques lining the narrow stone-paved streets. Then, if you're feeling adventurous, consider hang gliding for an exceptionally textural view of the topography. Use our France day trip app to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Annecy.
