Visit Auvergne


Hidden Clermont-Ferrand English Walking Tours creates unique, unusual, and immersive experiences that enable both newcomers to Auvergne and long-time residents to explore Clermont-Ferrand’s strange and mysterious history.


Designed and run by Dr A. D. Manns, the tours draw upon the poetic storytelling tradition of Auvergne’s medieval troubadours and feature a variety of thrilling, humorous, and little-known anecdotes.

Currently, Visit Auvergne offers two options:
