Swans swim the waters looking for handouts. It is a tourist town during the summer, primarily for the French natives who come here to swim, sun and have fun.
Market day in Annecy takes over most of the old town. Vendors including local farmers come here to sell their produce. This is the place to find unusual cheeses, locally produced sausages and prepared meats as well as vegetables, clothes and shoes.
