This has got to be one of the most charming places in France, possibly Europe.

Annecy is GORGEOUS! I wish we would have stayed a few days but honestly it made for a very nice day trip. However, next time I'm staying for a few days.

It is really worthy to visit Annecy. A charming little town with wonderful spots to photograph. Lots of souvenir shops and restaurants. Get lost on the narrow streets and enjoy the place.

A very beautiful and picturesque town. I could walk around its pebblestone roads for hours. The places and the old buildings, as well as the river traversing through the town makes it really wonderful.
