Book your journey in MontpellierFrance
Montpellier, a vibrant city
Located in the heart of the Languedoc Roussillon, Montpellier is the perfect place to experience the art de vivre of southern France: elegant, lively, cultured… From Paris in less than 3 hours and a half or from Barcelona in less than 3 hours, offer yourself an escapade to a city that combines old charm with the dynamics of a modern, vibrant, cosmopolitan European city. Outstanding cultural and vanguard destination, Montpellier is more than ever a must!
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.
