|Description||Chamonix is a picturesque alpine town dominated by the Alps mountains and glaciers rising majestically upwards to Mont-Blanc, the highest mountain of Europe.
A 90 minutes’ drive by bus through the picturesque Arve Valley takes you from Geneva to Chamonix with a professional guide. Enjoy the famous village of Chamonix with its little streets full of charm and admire the Alps.
Chamonix Mont Blanc has been at the sharp end of Alpine adventure since 1760, when a Genevois scientist offered a prize for the first ascent of the highest Alp. It had its first growth spurt in the Victorian era, hosted the first Winter Olympics in 1924 and has re-emerged on the freeride wave as the capital of all-mountain skiing. This steep-sided valley, draped with tumbling glaciers beneath a crown of rocky spires, is where snowsports and mountaineering meet.
With Chamonix being renowned as the world capital of alpinism, freeride skiing, ice climbing and ultra-trail running, this busy little town is a popular place for day trippers. A good place for shopping, designer brand,fashionable mountain brand or trendy surf wear settled in Chamonix. Lots of boutiques are selling local product as cheese, meats or fresh savoie honey.
In the afternoon, drive to Annecy with a stop in Geneva. You will have commentary through an audioguide on the bus and 3 hours of free time in Annecy.
Annecy called the "Venice of the Alps" offers harmonious and romantic landscapes. Surrounded by mountains, the picturesque old town is located on the banks of the Thiou River and Lake Annecy, one of the largest and arguably most spectacular natural lakes in France.
The old town and its colorful and flowered pedestrian streets, crossed by the river draw a picturesque and enchanting framework. The castle “Château d’Annecy” guards over the old town. Although Annecy has several museums and interesting churches, the lovely old town with its endless flower-filled balconies houses antique markets and handcrafts shops. Rich in cultural activities, from museums, castles and exhibitions, Annecy is rated the label "Art and History" so dear to the hearts of the inhabitants.
