Clermont Ferrand After our Backroads trip, we visited friends Estelle and Ken in the Massif Central, in a town called Clermont-Ferrand.
Their apartment looked out onto a medieval cathedral (left) and a volcanic crater (right)!

Then we walked all over the city, exploring Notre Dame Cathedral, Montmartre, the Marais, the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, Place Vendome, and the Madeleine.
