Photographer's Note

A promessed image for Rinie.

Annecy lies At the edge of the beautiful turquoise Lac d'Annecy, about 30 miles south of Geneva, it's the main administrative city of the Haute Savoie region.

Text from France-for-visitors.com:

"The most picturesque part of Annecy lies at the foot of the castle hill, a warren of lanes, passages and arcaded houses, below and between which flow branches of the Canal du Thiou, draining the lake into the River Fier. The houses, ringed by canal-side railings overflowing with geraniums and petunias, are incredibly beautiful, but the effect is marred by the fact that almost every shopfront in this area is either a restaurant or a souvenir shop."

* Of course taking a stroll around the streets of the old town of Annecy towards the Lake could not be missed. We enjoyed the architecture, the canals, the stores and boutiques, and a myriad of picturesque cobblestone streets, most remaining pedestrian streets.

** And also - the title explained - an incredible amount of icecream shops!!! :o)
