Travel inspiration in Montpellier and Lyon
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.
Lyon, the capital of French gastronomy
Proud of its history – Lyon was once the capital of the Gauls – the city offers an original trip back in time and through cultures. Gastronomy, culture, fêtes, nature, silk, light... you name it! Lyon has it! Besides being known for its culinary and architectural heritage, Lyon is also renowned for its effervescent cultural scene. The most appealing event of the city is the Festival of Lights, which takes place during four nights in December.
Reviews & ratings Montpellier - Lyon
We recently travelled as above... the journey to Geneva was not easy as SNCF decided to finish the trip at a station well before Geneva !!! Eventually order prevailed ( there were a lot of non-fluent trevellers, and we were led to another train. This of course meant substantial delays for everyone on the train. The train inquestion was fairly old and not all that comfortable. However, the return trip was another story... a very comfortable train,left on time - arrived on time. Not your fault at Rail Europe.. just one of those things. We have booked with you before, and will be using you again. Bill

"Paris CDG - Lyon"Radu c. 14/10/2013
It was a great ride! I loved it at it was my first time riding the TGV. The downside was that the coach had a funny smell, probably from when they cleaned the carpets, and it was a bit bothering.
"Gare Lyon-Lausanne"Radu c. 07/10/2013
My trip for the above is very good. Ground staff were helpful this time, seats were comfortable, convenient and price was reasonable. The cabins however were not clean. Lots of rubbish fell in between and quite dusty, rather unsightly. Regards, Lyn
