A Volcanic Student City
A student city surrounded by not one but eighty volcanos – if that sounds perfect to you then you might be a little weird…and quite possibly destined to visit the French city of Clermont. While it boasts many of the features found in other French cities, Clermont is famous for adding its own twist, such as building the city’s cathedral out of volcanic rock sourced from the nearby chain. Clermont is also considered a mecca for students in France as it has a long history of independence, creativity and innovation dating back to famous chemist Blaise Pascal and even further to the Roman Emperor Avitus, who both came from the city. Add in some of the best weather in France and a penchant for Clermont doesn’t sound so weird after all.
