Riom : Michelin's recommendations
The former seneschalsy of the Auvergne has preserved numerous vestiges of its splendid past within its wide boulevards, which follow the line of its former ramparts. A city of great judicial significance, it has retained its elegant air. Nowadays, it is also known for its summer festivities celebrating music, cultural heritage and gastronomy, culminating in its lively jazz festival. Nature-lovers can head for the cascade des gorges d’Enval and the impressive gour de Tazenat.
