About France


Travel through 1,000 years of history! Medieval streets take you back to the founding days and cobbled streets blend historical monuments and shops with vaulted ceilings, ideal for shopping. The School of Medicine, the oldest in the Western world, still active and with a paramount importance in the European medical history, is certainly worth a visit. So much wealth that the city intend to candidate to UNESCO World Heritage!
Main tourist sites includes the Place de la Comédie with its imposing Opera House (which was inspired by the Opera Garnier in Paris), the top of the Arc de Triomphe overlooking the entire city with panoramic views of the sea.
Musée Fabre is a must-see, it houses one of the largest collections of fine arts in Europe. Don’t miss the exceptional architectures by Jean Nouvel, Zaha Hadid and many others well known architects...
Our tip: Hop on one of the four trams lines, two of them designed by the French iconic fashion designer Christian Lacroix.

Montpellier’s visit wouldn’t be complete without tasting the high quality Languedoc wines from the surrounding areas. Enjoy them in one of the many fine restaurants of the city or directly in the wineries where you can meet the producers. Don’t forget to take home a bottle as souvenir!

Go to the medieval street where everyone’s tastes will be satisfied.

    Great trip |
    "Comfortable carriages, very fast train, nice lunch (1st class). Usual problem - no indication of which end of the train to board that results in running the length of a crowded platform with heavy suitcases. "

    "Same as above. The ticket officers on the trains were helpful and friendly despite little English. There was a food trolley that came through which was well stocked. "

    "We booked first class seats for the journey - everything was good except surprised with seat allocation - there was a lot of spare seats in our cabin however the assigned seats for us where next to a wall with very little view. Would have liked to be able to pick seats as on plane bookings. "

    Relax and enjoy the view. |
    "With memories from 2013 of a scrummage to board the train to Narbonne we arrived at Sants not looking forward to our upcoming journey. What a change! Plenty of time to board an empty, duplex train and appart from the expectation to haul our luggage upstairs (which I wasn't capable of, so it tresspassed on the lower level). Good personal space, coupled with travelling backwards meant an enjoyable trip to Montpellier, enjoying the view along the way. Tasty snacks we had from the bar, just a carriage away. Downers were the impossibly small toilets and having to 'fight' with thoseboarding passengers who didn't have the manners to allow us to get off first. "

    On time and comfortable.  |
    "Always enjoy our train trips. Very happy with the booking process and the journey. Only one small problem. We have to print out our tickets rather than keep the information on our phones like the airlines do. This can be a problem for travellers finding a printer. "

    Great way to get around France |
    "Enjoyable travel, comfortable seats, cafe on board sells snacks, drinks and sandwiches. Toilets on board. Announcements are made in French only. The platform will only be advised 20 minutes prior to departure and when the train arrives it's a mad scramble to find your carriage, they aren't chronologically ordered. There is a map on the platform screen showing where each carriage is located but be prepared because it's crowded with passengers and TGV staff with trolleys. "

    TGV or internal flights? |
    "The TGV from CDG to Montpellier was smooth and relaxing after more than 24 hours squeezed in an economy plane seat from Australia. The connection was seamless, and not taking much longer than plane, taking into account the waiting and transfers. The price was equivalent to the airfare but without the hassles, overall better value. The return journey was equally good. "

    Apprehensive, but won over! |
    "I have long avoided train travel in Europe, having experienced some difficulties in the past. I have always preferred flying and have gone to great lengths to do so. However, my recent journey, Montpellier to ParisCGD won me over. It was comfortable, fast and our considerable luggage was within eyesight. So that's it. I'm converted. "

    "Seating very comfortable. Trip enjoyable. views great. Toilets very dirty. Did not see any one around to clean them. Traveling in first class I had hoped for some service but there was none. Traveling alone it is difficult to have to carry around your luggage in order to buy some food or get a drink 2 coaches further down. Did not like traveling backwards as the seats where placed that way "
