Annecy Day Trip

Highlights

Nicknamed the ‘Venice of the Alps’ this wonderful town is the jewel of the Alps. Colourful buildings perched next to waterways, houses and endless restaurants, bistros and boutique shops. A steep walk to the top of the Old Town reveals the impressive Château De Montrottier & Gorge du Fier. The Wonderful Lake that surrounds the town is one of the most pristine in Europe. Boat tours around the Alpine lake are highly recommended to finish off the day.

Chateau de Montrottier et Gorges du Fier

The medieval castle of Montrottier and its remarkable collections is located in the Savoyard foreland between the Rhone and the limestone Pre-Alps. The castle houses wonderful sets of furniture, earthward, lace, weapons and rare objects from Africa and the far East. 

 

Opened in 1869, the Gorges, 300 m long, 70 m deep, surpass in picturesqueness and striking size the most famous Gorges. At the exit of the Gorge, the river threads its way through a veritable maze of rocks. It is a vast lapiaz with tormented shapes called "Sea of Rocks"

Lake Annecy

With the Alps as the back-drop, this world-famous lake is simply breathtaking. With a glorious promenade lining the banks, take in the incredible panoramic views. Pedal boats and swimming are allowed in this crystal clear lake, so relax, enjoy the stunning views. Optional boat cruise tour of the lake is available.
