Annecy Day Trips from Geneva

By Viator, January 2018

4.5 100 Reviews | Add your review

Known as the “Venice of the Alps” thanks to the River Thiou and numerous canals winding through, the romantic French town of Annecy sits in the shadow of the Swiss Alps. Annecy’s storybook charm is only 45 minutes from the Swiss border—and, thus, makes a popular day trip from Geneva.

Half-Day Tours
Book a morning or afternoon Annecy half-day tour from Geneva and enjoy a guided walk through the cobbled streets of Annecy’s Old Town, visit the hilltop Chateau d’Annecy, and snap photos of the 12th-century island fortress, Palais de l’Isle.

Full-Day Tours
To enjoy plenty of free time to take in the highlights of Annecy, join a private full-day tour from Geneva. Start your day with an exploration of the historic Old Town with your personal tour guide. Visit the Palais de l’Isle and the Chateau d’Annecy, and wind up with a boat ride around Lake Annecy. If you want to squeeze in even more sightseeing, combine your visit to Annecy with a stop in Chamonix by booking a tour that includes prearranged train travel, a guide in Chamonix, and an audio guide in Annecy. Alternatively, opt for a Geneva and Annecy full-day tour to combine a Geneva sightseeing tour with a cruise around Lake Geneva before heading across the Switzerland-France border to Annecy, where you can cycle around Lake Annecy and explore the medieval town.

Things to Know 
  • Half-day tours run about five hours; full-day tours may last up to 11 hours.
  • A current valid passport is required on the day of travel.
  • Cruises on Lake Geneva are not available in the winter.
  • Entrance fees to the Chateau d’Annecy and other attractions are not included in all tours.
