Annecy is a commune in the Haute-Savoie department in the Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France.It lies on the northern tip of Lake Annecy (Lac d’Annecy), 35 kilometres south of Geneva. (wiki)
Annecy hosted a Tour de France stage 3-time in history.
Mont Revard (1,538 m) is a mountain in the Bauges Massif near Aix-les-Bains in Savoie, France.
The Semnoz is a mountain of medium altitude (1699 meters), between Annecy and Allèves (gorge of Banges) in a north-east/south-west. It is located in Haute-Savoie.Known as the green lung of Annecy, the Semnoz mountain is a year-round destination for hikers, equestrians, mountain-bikers, paragliders and skiers. However, until today, the Tour de France has only once passed through this panoramic landscape during an eventful stage of the 1998 edition, which went from Albertville to Aix-les-Bains. This year, the finishing line has been drawn on the summit, in recognition of Semnoz’s majestic position in the Annecy landscape. (letour.fr)
