Annecy is a city in the Region of Rhône Alpes. It looks a little like Venice and is ironically called the Venice of Savoie.
The city has a feeling of old and new. If you like to take long walks, bicycle rides, this city is definitely for you. In June the city holds its international annual animation festival. I was here for an afternoon, taking in the view and sampling the local cheese. I ended up buying a spray painting from a street artist from Ivory Coast.
The town is picturesque and there are lots of things to do all year round. You can take a boat for a mini-cruise, visit the old town, shop and just admire the scenery. Annecy speaks for itself. Check out these pics.
Have you ever been to Annecy? What was your experience? I definitely want to go back and re-visit the place.
