Your Destination:

Montpellier is a cultural, scientific and artistic crossroads with an incomparable heritage. L’Ecusson, with its Place de la Comedie, dominated by the opera house, stretches all the way to the new Antigone quarter designed by Ricardo Bofill. The narrow streets, lines by many 17th and 18th century mansions, lead to St Peter’s cathedral, the western world’s oldest medical schoo, the Place Royale du Peyrou and the botanical gardens created during the reign of Henry IV.

Called the Jewel of the South, there’s something for everyone in buzzing Montpellier. While away the hours at the grand pedestrianized Place de la Comedie – the beating heart of the city. Shop till you drop in the markets of the Esplanade.

Soak up the atmosphere in the quiet, shady streets of the old town. Step back in time at the 14th century Cathedral of Saint Pierre. Or head out of town to the golden beaches along the coast of the deep blue Mediterranean Sea.
