"Annecy" (""Èneci"" / ""Ènneci"" in Arpitan language) is a commune in the Haute-Savoie departmt in the Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France.

It lies on northern tip of Lake Annecy ("Lac d"Annecy"), 35 kilometres south of Geva.

Annecy is the capital of the departmt of "Haute Savoie" no. 74.

The metropolitan area of Annecy includes 13 municipalities.

Annecy is the capital of three cantons:
* The Canton of Annecy-Ctre is made up of a part of Annecy and has 15,344 inhabitants;
* The Canton of Annecy-Nord-Est is also made up of part of Annecy and counts 19,540 inhabitants;
* The largest canton is that of the Annecy-Nord-Ouest, which is formed from a part of Annecy and the communities of La Balme-de-Sillingy, Choisy, Épagny, Lovagny, Mésigny, Metz-Tessy, Meythet, Nonglard, Poisy, Sallôves et Sillingy. Its population numbers 44,164.

Annecy is located betwe Geva and Chambéry. Thus its history was strongly influced by these two towns betwe the 10th and the 19th ctury. Starting as the capital of the county of Geva, after the demise of the counts of Geva, it became integrated into the House of Savoy"s possessions in 1401. In 1444, it was set up by the Princes of Savoy as the capital of a region covering the possessions of the Gevois, Faucigny and Beaufortain. With the advance of Calvinism in 1535, it became a cter for the Counter-Reformation and the bishop"s see of Geva was transferred hereSuppressed in 1801, it was restored in 1822.

During the Frch Revolution, the Savoy region was conquered by France and Annecy became attached to the "départemt" of Mont Blanc, of which capital was Chambéry. After the Bourbon Restoration in 1815, it was returned to the Kingdom of Sardinia (heir of the Duchy of Savoy). Wh Savoy was sold to France in 1860, it became the capital of the new "départemt" of Haute-Savoie.

Francis of Sales was born at the castle of Sales, close by, in 1567. He was bishop of Annecy from 1602 to 1622.

Annecy was the site of the second round of Geral Agreemt on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) talks in 1949.

The Fier forms part of the commune"s north-western border.
The mountains around the town of Annecy are; Le Mont Verier, Le Semnoz, La Tournette and the Parmelan.

Annecy has hosted the "Annecy International Animated Film Festival" since 1960.

On July 23, 2009 Annecy played host to Stage 18 of the Tour de France, as the start/finish point for an individual time trial around Lake Annecy.

On October 16, 2009, the International Olympic Committee has listed Annecy as one of the three Applicant Cities for 2018 Winter Olympic Games, with Munich, in Germany, and Pyeongchang, in South Korea.
