Montpellier city guide

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. Take the tramway to the Port Marianne area to discover the City Hall and the design centre. End your stay by visiting the Castle of Flaugergues.

Take a break and lunch in Place du Marché aux fleurs by enjoying a fine cuisine on the terrace of Tamarillos.

Go to the Odysseum leisure zone or in the medieval street where everyone’s tastes will be satisfied.

  • "TGV travel"    
    I had a great trip on the TGV. It was faster than going by car - I left Paris at lunchtime and arrived in Montpellier 3 1/2 hours later with enough time to walk around the old city before it got dark. I sat on the upper level of the train and loved the views. The seat was comfortable with lots of leg room and I really liked the little garbage can between the two seats. I really recommend TGV travel!  
  • "Comfortable way to travel"    
    Train is a comfortable way of travelling in France. It's not the cheapest though, but the convenience of leaving from city centre and arriving to Montpellier city centre is definitely worthwhile. Also, I enjoyed the punctuality and the leg room on the seats.  
  • "Great"    
    Train was comfy , and reached distination in time, instructions in 3 languages, just hope they are said slower Thank you  
  • "1 class"    
    everything was as publicized. very comfortable  
  • "New Zealanders in France"    
    This was a delightful trip. My partner enjoyed the landscape all the way from her comfortable seat. Timing was perfect. I was impressed with the booking service also. I originally made a mistake which was accepted by the website and corrected. Thank you very much  
  • "Trip to Gevene and Montpellier"    
    It was wonderful experience of Life specially on time arrival and departure is amazing, the most interesting part train setup, the cafeteria, toilet facilities and ground staff. I was surprise when i asked for the help of locating a place TVG staff not only help me but guide me through computer printed map.  
  • "Trip review"    
    Firstly I noted an error: I traveled on 2013-08-27 and not on 2013-08-07 as written in your request for feedback. Now about the trip: 1. The train departure was delayed by 30 min. The passengers were provided with the explanation that this was due to a similar delay of a TGV arriving from Spain, which was supposed to be attached to the TGV Montpellier - Paris. This delay could have caused problems to me because I had to catch a plane from Paris CDG later on the same date, for which I had to travel from Gare de Lyon to the airport at rush hours. Fortunately I caught the plane. 2. The ticket was way too expensive when comparing with the price of the iDTGV by which I traveled on 23 August 2013 from Paris to Montpellier (approx 180%) in the same comfort and speed conditions. In the same respect the aggregate value of the tickets TGV plane (not a low cost one!) from Montpellier to my home country was greater than the airfare on the same route (but I could not book such a flight on that date). 3. Nevertheless the TGV in France is an excellent transport means, with a minus in terms of price.  
  • "Delays"    
    The actual train trip was fine. However, we noticed delays on our route the day before we travelled. Our train was first posted as being 10 minutes late, then 40 minutes, then an official went round saying that a train was coming and passengers should get their tickets stamped if it was not the train they had booked on, but it was not clear which train it was. Also, there was little information in English. There was rather a crush to get on the train, but after that we found our reserved seats and had no further problems.  
  • "To Sete"    
    A good way to get to Sete but, the food cart ran out before getting to us and the change of trains at Montpellier was not as easy as we expected. However that part of the trip was very short and we got in on time.  
  • "not so luxury"    
    we have travelled on some other TGV. this one was second class. The carriage - business - was old  
  • "Happy to recommend."    
    happy to recommend travelling by TGV train. No stress, clean and comfortable.  
  • "TGV ***** small limitations"    
    timeliness: fantastic, parted and arrived on schedule minute comfort: 1 class seats train noise: not perceptible but noisy family next to us (regroup differently?) GSM's are a curse toilet was inundated  
  • "paris metz"    
    everything ok just one suggestion for be able to selct an option for the seat. I have trouble travelling on the opposite way of the road. I would love to be able to fslect a seat which faces the road thanks  
  • "Not enough space for baggages "    
    Though in general the trip is fine, there is not enough space to place the baggages which is a serious handicap.  
  • "Great journey "    
    Very convinience though it was packed due to French National Day. It would be good if there is the SMS to alert where is the track no due to we have to wait for long time for the location.
