DISCOVER ANNECY FOR 1 DAY
what can U.S in one day in Annecy?
We arrived in Annecy on July 9 at the end of the afternoon and we leave on July 11 in the early morning, which leaves us not much time to visit this city.
It is impossible to go to Annecy without pass by the LAC. The city of Annecy has gone all out on aquatic activities linked to the lake, there are all kinds.
A LITTLE TOUR IN THE CENTER OF THE CITY OF ANNECY
We also have other activities related to the discovery of this city dating from the Middle Ages, just next to the lake there is the castle recently renovated, a magnificent castle overlooking the city. We didn't want visit the castle because we preferred discover the city and its secrets. The city of Annecy is all simply magical because of its history but also by its style of "Venice" a medieval and modern style at the same time. The sunset is simply beautiful when the evening light comes to caress the roofs and come to die on the rivers which cross the city.
HIKING AROUND THE LAKE
To access the hiking circuit you must pass on the pont des amours, a bridge which allows you to cross from one side to the other and which will allow you to go from the city of Annecy to Annecy-le Vieux which is located about 3km from the city center of Annecy and it is there that you will start for the hike around the lake (40KM) and many other circuits ( link below). Old Annecy has become a very residential district so apart from hiking there is not much thing to see...
