Paris, the national capital, is situated 170 miles (274 kilometers) north of Montlucon, while Lyon lies 110 miles (177 kilometers) to the east.
Traveling through this part of France should be an adventure, so set aside some time to go on a little road trip and explore some of the other towns and cities in the vicinity of Montlucon. Two places within a relatively short distance of Montlucon are Toulx-Sainte-Croix, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the east, and Gouttieres, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northwest.
Moulins, is another good place to head to. It is around 40 miles (64 kilometers) from Montlucon and offers a wide range of points of interest, including Moulins Cathedral, Anne de Beaujeu College and La Mal Coiffee Prison. Moulins Park and Centre National Du Costume De Scene are good places to visit.
History lovers won't want to miss the region's traditional villages.
Try some of the area's great winter attractions. Do as the locals do and have a go at cross-country skiing here. Skiing is also popular.
When it's time to leave this special part of the world, say a fond Au revoir / À bientôt (farewell) to the interesting people you've met and the places you've spent time.
