I had read about Annecy on a blog during my research for our trip and immediately knew that we had to visit as a stopover between France and Italy. The scenery, turquoise water, and beautiful architecture were like a dream. The city is located in southeastern France and is absolutely breathtaking (look at the pictures and see for yourself!). We spent our first day just exploring the old city, eating good food (real French crepes!), drinking good wine and walking along the lake (we even found a small beach where we relaxed in the sun for a bit). The old town is easily explored on foot and definitely something that I would recommend doing because we found that part of the fun is exploring the small streets, crossing the bridges, and walking along the water.
