    It was a quick day/overnight in Annecy we arrived by train around 4 and had an incredible visit. We stayed in a VRBO in a beautiful condo with exposed beams. In the morning we went for a walk around the lake and spent a couple of hours wondering in the market.

    Spent a full day in the charming city and it was all so enjoyable. A delightful Old Town is superb, and sunshine throughout was a further bonus.

    All around the river is wonderful, replete with lovely streetscapes, buildings and many eateries of all kinds.

    La Tournette is one of the best hiking I've done !

    It's neither easy nor difficult. You just need to have a minimum hiking experience as haut-savoyards and have the appropriate equipement (hiking shoe, maybe walking pole...). Don't forget your gloves when the temperature drops !
    At the top, there is a magnificient panoramic view over Haute-Savoie (Annecy lake, Mont-Blanc...) !

    Also if you have the chance you can bump into ibex.

    I deeply recommend this hiking !

    The Palais de l’Isle is the iconic wedge-shaped building that can no doubt be seen on most photos of Annecy.

    The building is actually a museum now and well worth a look round.
    Alternatively, just be like most tourists and get your camera out.

    What more could one ask for. On a glorious sun-filled late Saturday afternoon it was delightful crossing the famous bridge. Albeit in the company of many many others.

    On either side were fabulous scenes. Canal du Vassé on one was beautiful, lined with trees and many little craft moored.

    Expansive and fabulous the Lake vistas were breathtaking. Framed by mountains with lush greenery and trees all around. Multitudes of boats were out enjoying the water. Many others were anchored.

    A beautiful expanse of green and rich in flora is lovely to relax within. Many pathways lead amongst the trees and ample seating is in place.

    A further plus is its scenic location by the exceptional lake.

    It is a beautiful little town and the views of the lake and the mountains are amazing. However, even in February it was full of tourists with movement along the main drag sometimes difficult.

    Amazing marble columns inside. Left a donation for the upkeep and a couple of leaflets we took for information. Didn't go up the bell tower as it wasn't clear how to do this, but instead took a walk up the mountain nearby for a lovely view of the city (and free).

    I asked for a list of restaurants that would be open December 25th. The person on the phone was super friendly and sent me the list immediately. Great response time. Thank you for being so helpful.

    In the warming afternoon sunshine it was great strolling around the expanse of green.

    Pleasantly moving through the pathways surrounded by deep green trees and other flora was most enhancing.

    A further benefit was the near presence of the superlative Lake.

    It’s an interesting church for its size and location. It’s big but inside it’s devoid of the many religious artifacts you’d find in other parts of France.
