I spent 1.5 days in Annecy, and I have to say that I had the most surprisingly good time. I am renting an AirBnb in Lyon, and my landlord asked me and my sister to leave for the weekend as he had a pre-scheduled booking. So I decided to go to Annecy! I ended up taking a flixbus to the city centre, then walked to the hostel. Little did I know that this one day of the entire year was the "descente des alpages", meaning all of the mountain animals come down and are walked through the town in a parade. There were horses, and Bernese mountain dogs, cows, ducks, all with bows and whistles! This beautiful town was full of people and all of the regions' delicacies, Tartiflette, Saucisson, and Glaces it was all amazing.
