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.

Reviews & ratings Avignon - Montpellier
I wonder why train compartments in Europe have very obscure indications of their coach numbers and some of them even put seat numbers in very unlikely places.
We recently travelled from Avignon to Montauban transferring at Montpellier. Train service was on time. Montpellier station is being renovated and was quite difficult to get on and off platforms due to crowds. For short trips, second class travel on French trains is perfectly adequate.
We recently travelled from Avignon to Barcelona and considered the best and safest way to do the trip was by train. It turned out to be the right decision and the trip was great. Only one small problem - if you have a lot of luggage as we had, getting from the platform to the train and vice versa can be a challenge. However, that aside, the trip was comfortable, the scenery was great and the trains clean and on-time. The station at Montpelier was easy to negotiate. I would travel by TGV again - and again.
