Vichy : Michelin's recommendations
This famous resort, known as the “queen of spa towns”, is home to eclectic architecture from the second half of the 19C and early 20C. Visitors will enjoy its extensive and peaceful parks, as well as the wide range of attractions on offer here. In the Grand Casino, nowadays a conference centre, you will relive the darkest hours of Vichy’s history on 10 July 1940, when full power was handed over to Marshal Pétain and the town was designated as the capital of the French State.
