Welcome to Annecy!

Annecy greeters welcome you in town to discover Annecy as guests. Annecy has a lot of things to offer for visitors: lake, bars, old town…

During that visit, Annecy locals (or “greeters”) will be happy to share with you how charming that city is by guiding you to unusual places. You’ll learn also some parts of that city history. That visit will take into account of course your will to discover any specific topic and you rythm.

We are volunteers, members of International Greeter Association. Our wish is to offer you an annecy visit as we would do for friends. We are not professional guides, just curious locals speaking several languages (English, Italian, Spanish…) and happy to welcome you.
