Start your visit of Clermont-Ferrand by the Gothic cathedral Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption located near our Kyriad hotels. Then continue by visiting old Montferrand to discover its medieval half-timbered houses. Plan an evening to enjoy the many culinary specialties of the Auvergne region in one of the typical restaurants of the old town. The next day, an excursion to Puy-de-Dôme is essential. On foot or by rack railway, at the top you will take in breathtaking panoramic views of Auvergne
A longer stay at our Kyriad properties in Clermont-Ferrand will allow you to visit the Bargoin Museum, which includes a large archaeological collection of the pre-Roman and Gallo-Roman eras. Forest hikes in the nearby Auvergne volcanoes will be on the program. After that, do not miss a solid lunch based on Auvergne's culinary specialties. Our receptionist will provide you with suggestions. For outdoor history lovers, visit the Gergovie Oppidum. Located just 12 km from the city center, this place was the only one to resist Julius Caesar (in addition to the Breton village of Asterix and Obelix!).
A must-see in Auvergne, don’t miss out on Vulcania Park, a large educational theme park that will inform visitors about the volcanoes in Auvergne.On this same site, the Children's City offers an initiation for the youngest guests. Located outside the city, the youngest will enjoy the activity parks, the indoor park in Aubeer or the aquatic park in Orce. Closer to your Kyriad hotel, in the open air at Clermont-Ferrand, the Kizou Adventure Park will allow children and adults to play on ziplines, slides, the climbing wall and other activities. It’s an ideal way to whet your appetite before tasting Auvergne cuisine at the restaurant.
