April 2018, after thinking about it for months, I finally set my foot in South of France. Choosing the first city was of course very hard but I just took the most practical decision. Reaching Montpellier from Paris was the easiest thing thanks to Ouigo.
Montpellier is warm, warmer than Paris and I could admire a blue sky ( Paris has been acting up lately ), a soft wind and a familiar architecture. I spent two days in the city, and since it’s quite small, I even had some time to visit another small town called Sète. It’s possible to do everything by foot in Montpellier. The city is quite small and it was easy to find my way.
WHAT TO SEE IN MONTPELLIER?
Place de la comédie: This was the first place I went to. It must be the most lively place of the city. Restaurants, bars, a shopping center, all right next to the train and tram station.
Rue du Bras de Fer: What a lovely small street! Here you will discover little shops and bars in a very calm and beautifully decorated street. It’s a very small place but worth a little look.
Promenade du Peyrou and Arc de Triomphe: Here you can take a walk, go for a run or enjoy drinks and food on the grass. There is also a beautiful view of the city.
Place de la Canourgue
Place de l’Europe
Rue de la Fontaine
