France Annecy 2000.07.11 - 07.13

Escape to Annecy

Waiting for the rain to clear in Chamonix, we looked for something new to see. The hotel receptionist in Chamonix recommended that we go to Annecy (pronounced ann'-see). Finding a train ticket was easy. We went.

Annecy has a charming old section that claims to be the oldest settlement in France. The first settlers arrived in 4000 BC, a whopping 6000 years ago. Other that roaming the old section of Annecy called Le Vieux Annecy (not to be confused with the adjacent city Annecy Le-Vieux), we didn't find much else. It was a good escape from the rain for a few days.
