It is due to these channels that Annecy has become known as the “Venice of Savoie”.
Old pedestrian streets, cobbled streets, many canals and bridges decorated with flowers, ocher facades, reflecting in the water, swimming swans, ships and yachts on the lake, the old park in Europe with walkways and fountains - a popular place for locals walks.
Regular and reasonably priced boat service connects Annecy to other lakeside towns, such as Saint Joriaz, Duingt, Doussard and Menthon-Saint-Bernard. In Menthon-Saint-Bernard you can tour the glass blowing factory of Maryline Vittori or visit the protected marshland in Saint Joriaz.
