First stop: Annecy, France

We start our journey in Annecy, a picture perfect alpine town in France 🇫🇷🌻⛰

Stroll the cobbled streets, winding canals and pastel-colored houses in Vieille Ville (old town). Get up to the medieval Château d’Annecy, transformed to a museum overlooking the city. If only for some great (photo) shots.
Jump in a canoe and paddle to "La Cuillère à Omble" for some lunch at the lake’s southern end, serving local freshwater fish.

🛌 Stay two nights
👉 Then take the train onwards to Lausanne in Switzerland
