Annecy is located in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of Southeastern France. It lies on the northern tip of Lac d’Annecy (Lake Annecy), 22 miles south of Geneva, Switzerland. The network of canals that make their way through the old town through the Thiou River gives the city its moniker, Venice of the Alps. Walking through the old town fills your senses with colorful buildings and cobblestone streets with charming historical flavor. You can catch glimpses of the mountains and lake in the distance while enjoying the town’s many restaurants, cafes, and cute boutiques. Our journey takes place during the best time to visit Annecy, from September to November. The high season for tourism is over, and the weather is comfortably cooler but without the snow.
