Clermont-Ferrand has an exceptional setting – born of fire, water and air, in the land of the Auvergne volcanoes: a mere stone’s throw away, eighty sleeping volcanoes are silhouetted against the sky, dominated by their landmark, the Puy de Dôme. At Vulcania, the unique European Park of Volcanism, your heart will beat to the rhythm of the Universe.
To the North, are the fertile cereal plains of the Limagne; to the East, the sun rises over the wooded mountains of the Livradois-Forez, highlighting their remarkable beauty; nearer still is the Oppidum of Gergovie, where the young chief of the Gauls, Vercingétorix, defeated Caesar.
Clermont-Ferrand is the natural gateway to the vast territory of the Massif Central, and has a strategic position in the centre of France at the crossroads of the main highways of Europe. For each season the region changes its mantle, offering visitors a new variety of rich colors over the wide open spaces.
