No, actually I found it! It's Annecy FRANCE!

Go halfway down this link and you will see a very similar photo taken from a slightly different angle, but this must be the same place:

Here's another link to the same photo:

Actually, looking at it again, it isn't exactly the same canal as the one in the photo I was looking for, but it is remarkably similar, so maybe it's the same town but a different canal? I'll have to keep digging.

Ok, it's confirmed to definitely be Annecy.

See the 2nd photo at:

Or the first photo at:

I'll just have to add this to my list of places to visit one day. I must not have been far from there in 2000 as we were in Chamonix and drove down toward Nice, but went further West at first, which would have put us not far from Annecy.
