Travel in Annecy

Imperial Palace, the congress center, is situated very close to the Center of the town, about 15 minutes by foot. Unless you live far from the center, you won't need to use any other sort of locomotion than your feet. Especially since the environment is really splendid, and the weather normaly is very nice in June.

If you use a car in Annecy, don't forget that you are in a quite Latin country, and the people here drive as in one of those. (French men may be known as gallant, but wait until you see (and hear!) them behind the wheel...)
