Famous for its chain of extinct volcanoes surrounding Clermont-Ferrand includes the highest Puy-de-Dôme volcano only 13 km (8 mi) from its city center. As one of the oldest cities in France, its population of 15,000-30,000 inhabitants in the 2nd century CE made it one of the largest cities of Roman Gaul. Today, although the two cities Clermont and Montferrand are merged, the city still has two distinct downtowns, and Montferrand retains a strong identity. Called France's Liverpool, the city is well known for hosting film, dance, music, and theater festivals, including its renowned annual International Short Film Festival.
For more than 100 years, the Michelin tire manufacturing company has called Clermont-Ferrand home, and you will see the influence of this multinational company has on this area during your visit. Take a walk in the old town area for many shopping opportunities in quaint stores selling antiques, local crafts, and clothing, as well as restaurants serving truffade, a regional pancake made with potatoes, goose fat, and tome fraîche cheese. Our France trip itinerary planning website combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
