Don’t miss the views of beautiful Annecy from the Chateau should you decide to visit it for a day from Lyon. Chateau d’Annecy sits on the hill and towers above the city and Lake Annecy. After paying the entrance fee, walk all the way to the end of the castle and you’ll find a green backyard with a fort. From here, you’ll see the uninterrupted views of the charming little town.
Enjoy the views.
Little Venice. Because of the presence of some canals, the town is said to be the “Little Venice of France.” Unlike Venice, this town is away from hordes of tourists that cramped the Italian water town. There are no canal tours here and no gondolas for honeymooners. And what’s more, the Lac d’Annecy is the cleanest lake in Europe!
Boat Tour / Cruise. You can do a boat
Take your time drinking in the views from the imposing Chateau. You will see mountains, medieval houses, greens, canals, churches with domes and spires, and chimneys.
If you are visiting Lyon, it would be worth it to go on a trip to Annecy for a day. There are a couple of trains that stop here. If you want to stay here for a night, and got some money to spare, staying at fabulous boutique hotels in the city and around the lake would be great!
