Welcome to Montpellierthe city of sunshine

Montpellier is a city of sun, festivities and good humour. As well as its medieval architecture, which gives it a crazy character, the city is dynamic, lively and full of surprises.

Whether you’re interested in history, culture or just looking for a lively, fun city to explore, it’s a must-visit destination in the south of France.

Montpellier andits entertainment

First of all, let’s start with the really fun part of this city. It’s well known for its student life and lively nightlife. The city centre is packed with bars and restaurants. We recommend Le Panis and Broc Café. And if you’re looking for a good Sunday morning brunch, Tartine et Sac à Dos is the place to be. But Montpellier’s charm also lies in its paillotes. Tested and approved by StyQr; La Pampa, le Bambou and l’Effet mer. They’re all just outside the city centre, so don’t be afraid to stray a little 😉.

Are you a fan of live music? Then you’ve come to the right place. Many festivals are organised during the summer, including the Radio France Occitanie Festival and the Printemps des Comédiens.

Looking for nature and discovery? Then you’ve come to the right place 😉. Whether you’re in lazy mode on a sandy beach or adventurous with its hikes with panoramic views over the city, there’s plenty to do here too. Try the Pic Saint Loup hike and discover an exceptional panorama.

Placesnot to be missed

Finally, you can’t spend any time in the City of Sunshine without visiting its must-sees.

We’ll start with the heart of the city, the Place de la Comédie and the Charles de Gaulle esplanade. It’s cult, unmissable and unmissable. From there, you’re in the right place to take the main boulevards and head for the Écusson district, Montpellier’s old town. It’s 80% pedestrianised, so it’s very easy to stroll around. Don’t miss rue de l’Ancien Courrier. It’s narrow, cobbled and full of shops.

Its Arc de Triomphe, which is no match for its Parisian brother 😉 stands at the end of the famous Avenue Foch.

The Peyrou promenade starts beneath the Arc. It’s an exceptional park with a beautiful view of the sea. It really is the place to come to relax and enjoy the fine weather.

If you make a stop at the Jardin des Plantes, you’re bound to discover one of the city’s most impressive buildings: the Cathedral of Saint-Pierre.

Neighbourhoodsnot to be missed

In a completely different style, the Antigone neighbourhood will give you the impression that you’ve moved to another city. But not at all! Its originality lies in its architecture, which is completely different from the rest of the city.

Speaking of neighbourhoods, the Saint-Roch and Saint-Anne districts are right next door and are packed with small bars, art galleries and street artists. It’s lively and friendly, just the way we like it.

Cultureand discoveries

And to end our visit on a cultural note, take a trip to the famous Musée Fabre. It’s particularly renowned for its beauty and its breathtaking collection of works. In fact, we’ve got a little tip for you! The museum is free every first Sunday of the month, so make the most of it!
