Salesian Quote of the Day

Annecy, France is the “Venice of the Alps” and the time honored place where St Francis de Sales served as Bishop and the location of the first community of the Sisters of the Visitation of Holy Mary. Walk down the long hill to the quaint town and head for the Lake of Annecy, a perennial place of beauty as well as boating, fishing and swimming, surrounded by the foothills of the Alps. The narrow streets of the old city are packed with cheese and charcuterie shops, ice cream stands, bakeries, cafes, and even chocolate shops.
