What's Vichy Like?
As the city was mostly constructed in the late 19th century, Vichy has an elegant mix of architecture. The regal Palace of Congress is an Art Nouveau gem that houses the opera house and theater. The extravagant chalets along Boulevard des Etats-Unis were largely built during Napoleon III's reign, yet reveal an eclectic blend of styles. The town's famous Thermes du Dome is no longer in operation, but the Art Nouveau spa still shows off the town's former thermal splendor and really is a wonder worth seeing. Vichy is very inviting with its parks, riverside promenades, cafes, shops as well as a couple of museums. The nearby Lake Allier is one of the best ways to sample the legendary local water and take in a lovely lakeside scene. Vichy hotels still capture some of the town's past allure, yet they also know how to indulge in more modern simplicity.

In this central region, knowing some basic French is highly recommended. The region's many local cheeses and fine pork selections feature heavily in the traditional cuisine.
