The Venice of the AlpsAn exceptional situation.
With the temporary lifting of the lockdown the restaurants and bars remain closed and the tourists are still far away.
The restaurants and bars are not allowed to open yet.
This town depends a lot on tourism and normally the streets are full of Christmas shoppers who come by coach from Switzerland and Italy and beyond.
Annecy is 30 minutes from Geneva.
I had no problem finding a parking place today.
And what about the Christmas holidays ?
We are opening up here for five days, I fear it will be a disaster.
Boris is "asking" people to keep celebrations small, but I don't see it happening..
