What to do in
Clermont Ferrand ?
Located at the foot of Puy de Dôme, one of Auvergne’s most famous volcanoes, the birthplace of Blaise Pascal has two faces. One is Clermont, the oldest and formerly Arvernis, the city of Avernes under Vercingetorix; the other is Montferrand, medieval and claimed by an Auvergne count. From these beginnings, Clermont-Ferrand inherited an incredible legacy which its economic strength - driven by numerous companies, with Michelin at the helm - has allowed it to preserve.
