Discover Montpellier

Young, dynamic, festive. Montpellier is a beautiful university town, graced with sunshine and the nearby Mediterranean Sea.

History and modernity rub shoulders in the hustle and bustle of daily life: the incomparable architectural and cultural heritage of the Écusson—the city's pedestrian-only historic centre—is right next to the ultra-contemporary architecture of the Antigone and Port-Marianne districts. Culture and sports are major activities here, with hosts of events, festivals and major exhibitions.


Discover the highlights of Montpellier, a thousand-year-old city.
