“Cool Suspension Bridge near Annecy.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

It is always on my itinerary to take my guests drop them off on one side and have them walk across, pick them up on the other. It is a nice view takes 5 minutes.

On the way to Geneva this old pint gives you one of the last great looks before heading into town if coming from Annecy..very well high above the pass can give more than one the goose bumps

“Worth a stop, but not a detour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2010

I am quite suprised to see that Pont de la Caille is listed as top attraction of Annecy. We have stopped there couple of times and while the bridge and the views from there are nice, I would not give them all that "fantastic" rating. In fact there are two bridges right next to each other. The old one is just for pedestrians, so you walk and take pictures. But you can also immediately recognise that it is as "medieval" as one can guess looking at the pictures - it was actually built in mid-XIXth century. There is nothing else in the area, so I would only advise you to stop by the bridge if you are driving on the national road between Geneva and Annecy anyway. However, if you are on the main highway, I would probably not bother leaving it just for the sake of stopping there, but simply stop at the "rest area", called Pont de la Caille, from which you can see both bridges and take a few pictures.
