A typical day at Lake Annecy

  • A trip around the local market (Tues., Fri., Sun.), followed by a 2-hour guided tour of Old Annecy.
  • Lunch in the old town.
  • 1-hour-commented cruise on Lake Annecy.
  • Leisure time in the old town for shopping and strolling around.
  • Option : weather permitting – exploring the lakeshore by bike

3 times per week, the market spreads its wares under the arcades. A wonderful opportunity to discover regional products and to meet with locals.

Your guide will then take you on a detailed tour of the old town of Annecy, with its enchanting alleyways, historic bridges and impressive arcades. You will get the chance to discover the town’s 2 iconic landmarks – the Castle-Museum towering over the town, and the Palais de l’Ile (or “Old Prisons”), standing in the middle of the Thiou, the river that winds its way through Annecy.

Following a delicious lunch of Savoyard and French specialities, you will embark for an hour-long commented cruise across the lake. This round trip, which sets sail from Annecy, is a wonderful opportunity to discover the lake’s majestic setting and to catch a glimpse of the authentic villages and exquisite dwellings dotted around the waterfront.

Once back on dry land, take some time out to stroll through the shopping districts, head off to see an exhibition or just simply sit back and relax at the terrace of a café.

Unless you prefer to go for a bike ride along the greenway that runs round the lakeshore and offers incredible vistas over the lake and the mountains.
