Annecy is a quaint and picturesque town located in the Haute-Savoie region of France, between the Alps and Lake Annecy. This charming city is sometimes called "The Venice of the Alps" due to its many canals and bridges that run through it. It features a variety of historical attractions, as well as modern amenities such as shopping, dining, and entertainment.

When visiting Annecy, visitors should make sure to explore the old town which includes cobbled streets lined with half-timber houses from centuries ago. While there, don't miss out on Palais de l'Isle; this fortified castle was built in the 12th century right in the middle of Thiou River! A great way to get an overview of all Annecy has to offer is by taking a boat tour around Lake Annecy - you'll be able to take advantage of its stunning views from both land or water. Lastly, make sure you take some time to wander through Les Jardins de l'Europe; this beautiful park boasts several walking trails for those who want to enjoy some nature without leaving the town center!
