  • The site of the Puy de Dome is worth a visit, but unless you are in a poor physical condition, avoid this train too expensive for what it is (44 euros for 2 adults and 2 youth...).

  • Family at Easter. Beautiful site visit of the puy de dome with the panoramic train. App downloaded for a guided tour. Think of your ikea family discount less 15% for 1 adult card. Not seen a paraglider because too much wind today. Too bad! We recommend.

  • It was beautiful it was super nice. A departure every 40 minutes, 15 minutes of trip: €13 round trip per adult, very well. The train seems new, large windows to enjoy the landscape. Just l have been worth it.

  • Amazing views! It was pretty cold and windy but we survived and the view was worth it. We took the train round trip as we had already done a lot of hiking earlier in the day. The return ticket was 13.50 € per person.
  • Nice view over half france but cold and windy too. Spectacular cloud formations visible, which change during seconds. Price for train is ok (13,5€ p. P. two way)
  • Worth a half day visit! Amazing views from the top and really convenient transport.
  • Quick and easy but a bit too expensive. Wonderful panorama up there
  • A beautiful place on top of Puy de Domes. A must see!
