Getting Around

Hiring a Car

Hiring a car in Annecy is easy, with numerous agencies based at the airport and in the city centre. But remember to drive on the right, a sharp contrast to the UK!

Driving Tips

Remember, priority is typically given to the right in France, unlike in the UK. Speed limits are generally 50km/h in urban areas, 80km/h on national roads, and 130km/h on motorways. Also, carry your driving license, identity document, proof of insurance and vehicle registration with you because police checks are routine.

Must-Visit Attractions

  • Château d'Annecy: A 12th-century fortress turned museum, showcasing regional artifacts.
  • Lake Annecy: Take a dip in the clear waters, enjoy a boat trip, or indulge in watersports.
  • Pont des Amours: Known as the 'Lovers' Bridge,' legend says if two lovers kiss on the bridge, they'll stay together forever.

Neighbourhoods and Surrounds

The Old Town, with its winding canals and pastel-coloured houses, is simply charming. Visit nearby cities like Lyon and Grenoble for a quick getaway.

Culture and People

Annecy's residents are warm and inviting. Don't shy away from engaging in conversation with the locals. Most people also speak English, making communication rather straightforward.

Climate and When to Visit

Annecy has a temperate climate. Summers are warm with temperatures ranging between 20°C - 30°C making it perfect for lakeside activities, while winter sees lots of snow, great for skiing in nearby resorts.


France uses the Euro (€). Credit and debit cards are widely accepted. Many places also accept contactless mobile payment. However, do note that the concept of rounding up the bill as a tip, often practiced in the UK, is not common here.

Local Events

Don't miss the iconic Annecy International Animated Film Festival, usually held in June, and the Fête du Lac, an extravagant fireworks display in August!
