Annecy Guide

Guide

Located a short 35kms south of Geneva, at the foot of the French Alps, is the beautiful resort town of Annecy. The region’s capital makes a great location for exploring the Haute-Savoie, and has some glorious views of the area’s mountains and lakes. It’s also a busy urban centre that becomes especially crowded in the summer months. With so many exciting attractions to see and do here, it is also best to reserve cheap car hire in Annecy before you travel. Car rentals provide tourists with the freedom to do as they please, and see sights unreachable by public transport alone.

In Town
Not far from the centre is Chateau de Montrottier, a 13th century citadel with a great view of Mont Blanc. During summer evenings a lovely carillion concert is performed on the church bells and can be best enjoyed sipping champagne on the grassy hillside and gazing at the breathtaking alpine views. Inside there is a small museum home to armours, tapestries, and pottery.

On Place du Chateau 74000 is the Musée Château d'Annecy. The museum contains regional artifacts that include alpine furniture, oil paintings, religious art and modern works.

Alternatively, tourists can spend a night at the Theatre d'Annecy, located at 1 Rue Jean-Jaurès.
