On today's episode we give you tips for visiting Montpellier (France) and why you should consider going next time you're in the south of France! We know even our most dedicated listeners probably haven't visited it because it's not on the "major tourist track",  but what charm and what a great lifestyle! We love it and we hope you will love this episode too!

Montpellier, France Is All About the Lifestyle

Montpellier is all about the lifestyle: you're close to the Mediterranean, close to Barcelona, close to Italy, and interesting parts of rural France are also nearby. It is not near as expensive to visit as cities like Nice and Monaco that are also next to the sea.

Even if you don't have time to enjoy the nearby beach, take the time to stop at a few of the city's cafés and restaurants. Slow down, you're in the south of France, not in Paris!

Some of Our Tips for Visiting Montpellier

Spend some time walking around the city center: place de la Comédie, place Jean Jaurès, Porte du Peyrou, Cathédrale Saint-Pierre. Don't forget to include the neo-classical newer parts of the city such as Antigone and the Esplanade d'Europe. And if you'd like to see a museum, we recommend the Musée Fabre.
