Here are things to do in the beautiful French city
Cycle Around Lake Annecy
The stunning Lac d’Annecy is like something from a dream. You’ll have to pinch yourself to believe this stunningly surreal lake is really there. Rent a bike and spend the day riding around the perimeter. When you get tired, take a nap among the daisy-spotted grass, and to cool off, take a dip in the lake.
All day, every day, eat this delicious Swiss dish that basically consists of a round cow’s milk cheese melted in front of an open fire. It is then scraped onto your plate and eaten with potatoes, dried meats, gherkins, and pickled onions. Never will you feel as toasty as when you are sitting in front of a fireplace in a restaurant looking onto the canals and stuffing yourself full of raclette.
Stroll Along The Canals
Spend a day or two, or three, getting lost among the whimsical canals of Annecy. Dubbed the ‘Venice of the Alps,’ the winding cobblestone streets lined by pastel houses and bright flower boxes will make you fall in love with this small French town. Stop for a croissant at a bakery, or sit and have a coffee and spend the afternoon people-watching and admiring the architecture.
Visit Pont des Amours
Annecy’s Love Bridge, Pont des Amours, is yet a beautiful sight to witness in Annecy. Legend has it that if two lovers kiss on the bridge, they will stay together forever. Even if you have no one to kiss that you want to make that kind of commitment with, this famous site, overlooking the lake and the mountains, is worth visiting.
Have A Picnic In The European Gardens
The beautiful lakeside European Gardens is the perfect spot for a lunchtime picnic. Grab some French pastries, cheese, baguettes, and cold meats from the market stalls and spend a leisurely afternoon lying on the grass watching tourists wander by.
Visit Palais de l’Isle
Seemingly straight out of a fairytale, this visible landmark’s history dates back to the 12th century. Now a local history museum, it was once a prison, mint, courthouse, and Lord’s residence. Most just stop to take a picture of the outside. Indeed, it is one of France’s most photographed attractions. If you want to go inside, it is open a few days a week and only in the warmer months, so plan ahead.
