Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    Maybe choose locations according to the weather at the moment.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    We were really lucky to find accommodation on the campsite of Lac d'Annecy. As usual, we left it to the last moment and all the places around the lake were completely full. Eventually we started to randomly ask at places and found a wonderful spot on the other side of the lake!

  • How was the food?

    Annecy: Haven, le bar roux d'heure Turin: Mollica, Orso cafe, market Piazza Madame Cristina Anduze: Saveur du Sud, L'O a la Bouche

  • Transportation Tips?

    Choose wisely your route from France into Italy and back, because some of the tunnels are really expensive. Driving through France you will need to pay a lot of Peage, but the roads are really good. If you have a lot of time you can opt for smaller roads that don't cost that much.
