This gorgeous route around Lac d'Annecy can be done in either direction and can easily be turned into a much shorter walk on just a portion of the trail. It has many starting points along the way with a lot to see and plenty of restrooms and places to rest. Please note that certain portions of the route are simply paved roads through town. This is especially true in the southeastern portion.Show more

Length: 12.2 mi • Est. 5 h 36 m
The "hidden" gems in this guide aren't exactly hidden, but they tend to get overshadowed by Paris' big-ticket attractions, and often get bypassed by first-time visitors to a city that is spoiled with dramatic cultural riches. No visit to Paris is complete without seeing highlights such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre or the Arc de Triomphe, but that doesn't need to be at the expense of other fascinating nearby sights that can be more fun, less crowded and give you a fuller sense of the city's passionate, colorful and sometimes dark nature. While the waypoints here mainly focus on sights, the route is planned so you can enjoy the feel of this unique city as you walk between them. You need at least four or five days to do justice to the full itinerary. If you are here for less time, it would be better to pick your favorite places and save the others for a future visit rather than rush frantically through a Paris checklist.Show more

Paris lit up in the evening is quite possibly more beautiful than Paris during the day. Instead of visiting a few of Paris' classic spots in the sunshine, consider the relaxing and romantic alternative of an evening walk tour. You'll beat the crowds, save time and end your night having experienced the city's true charm.Show more

Ajaccio is one of the largest cities in Corsica. All along the seafront of the bay there are many very beautiful beaches located 5-20 minutes from the city center. The Sanguinaires Islands region is the most famous part of Ajaccio Bay. Located at the far north of the bay, the small cape offers a magnificent panoramic view. There is a well-preserved Genoese tower (La Parata) built in the 16th century accessible with a small lane at the end of the cape. The short walk called "Chemin des Douaniers" between the cape and the "Sevani" beach is on a beautiful lane along the seaside in the woods and offers panoramic views and magnificent sunsets.Show more
