With its romantic canal ways, medieval spires and flower-lined promenades perched on the banks of its eponymous lake, Annecy’s storybook charm never fails to impress and at less than an hour from the Swiss border, the French town makes a popular day trip from Geneva.

The small town is easy to get around on foot or by boat, so you’ll have plenty of time to take in the highlights of the ‘Venice of the Alps’ on an Annecy half-day tour from Geneva, starting with a walking tour of the historic Old Town. With a jumble of colorful houses, terraced cafés and markets set against a backdrop of the snow-capped Alps and the glittering River Thiou, Annecy is undeniably photogenic and landmarks like the 12th-century island fortress Palais de l’Isle and the hilltop Château d’Annecy offer prime photo opportunities.

Alternatively, opt for a Geneva and Annecy full-day tour and couple a sightseeing tour of Geneva’s top attractions with a scenic cruise around Lake Geneva, before heading over the French border where you can cycle around Lake Annecy, explore the medieval town and tuck into a typical Savoyard meal.
