Overview

Montpellier, a vibrant city

Montpellier, a pioneer of ecological urbanism

Montpellier is one of the most important cities of France in terms of population. It is located in southern France, in the very heart of the Languedoc-Roussillon region and about 12 kilometres away from the Mediterranean Sea. Montpellier is a fast expanding city, and it is one of best places to experience the art de vivre of the southern region of France. This makes Montpellier an ideal holiday destination as well as a renowned student city.

Montpellier is a pilot city for ecological urbanism in France. Discover its wide pedestrian area and blue decorated tramways. You’ll be amazed to learn that its trams are designed by artists including Garouste, Bonetti and Christian Lacroix. Montpellier can also be visited by using the bike along the brand new bike path that follows the Lez River. The bike is also great to visit vineyards or to go to the beach.

From a stroll in the old town, discover the lively squares of Place de la Comédie to admire the Trois Grâces fountain and the Opéra-Comédie, built by the architect Garnier. On the Place Saint-Roch, is the 19th century church. Afterward go to the picturesque district of Sainte-Anne. From there, go to the Musée Fabre where contemporary spaces sit comfortably alongside ancient buildings. Visit the new areas of Montpellier to see modern designs. Walking in the city with an eye on the numerous buildings designed by Christian de Portzamparc, Jean Nouvel or Zaha Hadid, you will also discover the neoclassical Antigone district conceived by the Catalonian architect Bofill.

    "Love the experience. Train is fast, almost no stops between Paris and final destination. It runs quietly, on time and offers comfortable and clean seats with lots of leg space, options to recline, luggage storage. The only suggestions I would have was the limited food and drinks available for purchase on the train. "
