10. Lake Annecy, France
Known as “the cleanest lake in Europe” due to environmental regulations and actions in the early 1960s, Lake Annecy is like the icing on the cake of the Haute-Savoie region. Surrounded by mountains, villages, and mountain towns, the lake enjoys beautiful views and a mild climate. Formed 18,000 years ago by melting glaciers, the lake is about 14 km long, about 3 km wide, and 82 m deep. Its location on the border between France, Switzerland, and Italy is also very interesting. To the north, just 40 km from Annecy, lies Geneva and the famous Lake Geneva or Leman, as it is known in the French half.
Lake Como, Italy
Just 50 km from Milan, in the same region of Lombardy, in a historic setting with old but well-preserved buildings, lies the well-known Lake Como. The beauty of the landscape, the popularity of the area, and the access facilitated by the regional transport routes have made Lake Como a tourist attraction. So don’t be surprised by the crowds, especially in spring and summer. Many photography enthusiasts come here to enjoy this idyllic setting of the lake and the chic towns along with it. Starting with the representative city of the same name, Como, and smaller ones such as Brunate, Cernobbio, Laglio, Brienno, Lenno, or – at the opposite end – Bellagio.
Due to its position in the geographical area, more precisely, located in the north of the boot, just a few kilometers from the border with Switzerland, Lake Como gathers a lot of visitors. Eager to visit both the lake and cities such as Milan, Bergamo, Verona, or even Turin, tourists are also attracted by the many connections they can make with visiting the lake. Even Switzerland, with its beautiful mountainous areas in the south, becomes very attractive and accessible, being just a stone’s throw away, as we said. The famous mountain resort of Saint Moritz is just 100 km northeast of Lake Como.
