I am considering visiting Annecy after my time in Nice. I know I could easily fly to Geneva from Nice and get to Annecy from that point but I would like to know if train travel is an option and if so would it be recommended? The duration of the ride is not an issue, but if it is a very scenic route I would definitely consider the train over flying.
This will be in late July and of course I will take in Mont Blanc. I would like know if there are any other activities that would be recommended as the landscape looks beautiful.
