From reader Sue Woods on Facebook, about Annecy: "One of the most beautiful cities I've seen, and it was thanks to your recommendation. We stayed 3 nights. Did old city market, and all the cool streets, took so many photos. Then did the boat cruise around the lake the second day, and more walking, shopping etc the last day. Loved it!"
