Montpellier didn’t seem particularly touristy and is very lively due to the high student population. I had a wander around the narrow streets of the old town but ended up spending the majority of my afternoon there eating and relaxing in the Place de la Comedie.over 4 years ago

My bf and I changed travel plans while on a train to Spain. We decided to can the plan and stay in France that weekend. Since we had to change trains at Montpellier to get to Spain, we replanned our journey there. We had time to kill before our next train out back to home, we decided to explore the area around the station.
Montpellier stood out amongst all the French towns and cities we had seen. The usual scene outside a railway station in France is dirty. But with its palm tree-lined streets, Montpellier took our breath away. We walked upto the city centre as it was nearing dusk. The merry-go-round all lit up is something I can never forget. One of the cleanest French towns. The richness (money-wise) of the town is evident.
Oh ya! Great chinese restaurant on the street leading to the city centre from the station.

We stopped at this city on our ‘tour de france’, not knowing what to expect. As soon as we started exploring the city, we we’re absolutely charmed. It has a really nice tourist guide at the tourist office. And I believe they’re currently on a project to get to 100 fountains in the city.
