Montpellier Travel guide
Montpellier : Michelin's recommendations
Situated a few kilometres inland, the capital of Languedoc-Roussillon is a dynamic place. Bathed in Mediterranean light, its old quarters and public gardens are pleasant to stroll through by day, and its theatres, cinemas and opera make for a lively evening scene. Currently experiencing a period of expansion, the town (traditionally associated with medicine and research) is gradually transforming, with the appearance of some audacious architecture in its more recently developed districts.
