Venice of Savoie in Annecy, France

Annecy, France, is sometimes called the Venice of Savoie because of the peaceful canals flowing through the center of Old Town that connect to Lac d’Annecy. However, it is a stretch to compare Annecy’s two main canals named Thiou and Vassè with the 170 canals in Venezia. Savoie is a French department (a geographical and governmental area) within the Rhône-Alpes region of the French Alps.
