Clermont-Ferrand sits in the central Auvergne region of France, and so its airport tends to serve a number of nearby destinations. The city itself has a reasonably famous Short Film Festival as part of its more modern cultural heritage, as well as the tyre company Michelin which grew up in the area. There’s a huge cathedral with towering black spires, but strikingly, this isn’t what dominates the broader skyline; the Puy de Dome Volcano fulfils that role. Car hire at Clermont-Ferrand Airport is popular with tourists as Puy de Dome is a good 14km outside the city. Hiring a car in Clermont-Ferrand is available both from the airport and in the city centre.
