Annecy, the little Venice of the Alpes, is welcoming you! After the one-hour tour, this picturesque and colourful city will have no more secrets for you!
We will start our real-time streaming virtual tour from the medieval castle built on the top of a hill which is overlooking the city and gives an eye on the surroundings. Going down, let’s have a look at the amazing scenery opened on the tile rooves of the old town medieval houses.
Once downtown, you will follow the river for a while. Its natural stream gave birth to the city, with many activities, such as the sword industry. Did you know swords of Annecy were sold throughout Alpes Mountains to Italy and France? Today, the banks of the 19th century make it the place to be when you are in Annecy for the first time, like the Champs Elysees Avenue! Of course, we can’t miss the oldest building of Annecy dating back to the 12th century, housing the old jails and prisoner’s stories!
But Annecy also has hidden places: covered passageways. Originally leading through houses’ courtyards, resistance fighters escaped while tracked by Nazis. Today, they are helpful shortcuts while the city is busy! I love them because you feel like you are in a time machine.
In conclusion, let me show you an amazing overview of the lake!
