Great trip on the train and what views at the summit. There is also The Temple of Mercury to see and an exhibition on site. You can see for miles and make sure you visit on a clear day. Excellent...

Well worth a visit. The train was clean and comfortable, with clear views all the way up. The pathways at the top, are mainly concrete, and are well layed out. Traveling around the site, is therefore easy, although steep in places. The views of the surrounding countryside are fabulous, and there are many picture boards pointing out the many and numerous view points, giving each its name. Of course there is the obligatory cafe, serving mainly light snacks, and a souvenir shop. Free parking as well. Thumbs up
The Puy de Dome is a unique Paragliding site as you have the ability to take off in any wind direction. The views are stunning and it’s very accessible due to the train. Well worth a visit for those who fly or are interested in doing a tandem flight.
