Situated in the Massif Central, Saint-Étienne is a bustling capital of the Loire department with diverse activities and attractions, such as natural gorges, cultural events, cathedrals, historical sites, museums, and restaurants.
Step off the beaten path and head to Chateau de Crussol and Moulin Richard de Bas. Do some cultural sightseeing at Musee des Verts and Village de Mirmande. Change things up with these side-trips from Saint-Etienne: Musee de Valence, Art & Archeologie (in Valence), Le Puy-en-Velay (Cloitre de la Cathedrale du Puy-en-Velay & Cave de la Chevrerie) and Musee de l'Ecole (in Le Monastier-sur-Gazeille). The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Volerie du Forez, contemplate the long history of Mairie Ronde, see the interesting displays at Musee de la Coutellerie, and head outdoors with Mont Mezenc.
