A southern family weekend
Montpellier is a perfect city to stroll, to go back in time, to marvel at the colours of the Mediterranean.
The incredible architectural richness of its historic centre offers some great walks and its lively nightlife promises beautiful evenings on the terrace.
Montpellier and its region sum up all the pleasures of the south. Follow the guide we have drawn up for a three wonderful days.
Ref : 554
Begin your stay in Montpellier with breakfast in Place de la Comédie to get a feel for the city. Afterwards, walk up Rue de la Loge to enter the heart of its historic centre and why not get lost in the maze of lanes that make up Old Montpellier.
Stop for a drink at the elegant Place de la Canourgue before continuing on to the Cathedral and the Faculty of Medicine. Head back to the pleasant Place Sainte-Anne for lunch and take the opportunity to view the exhibition presented in the Carré Sainte-Anne.
In the afternoon, treat yourself to a post-lunch walk on the Place Royale du Peyrou before heading to the Saint-Roch quarter where many designer workshops and boutiques have opened.
Towards the end of the day, enjoy an aperitif and dine in this lively area that has plenty of good restaurants.
MyTripTailor Tip: After dinner, you will find many bars in the area for the evening
Use the morning of the second day to go and visit the collections of the Fabre Museum, before going on foot, or by bike, to the Antigone district to join the Rives du Lez and the Port Marianne quarter, a genuine showcase of contemporary Montpellier.
You will find something to eat for lunch around Bassin Jacques-Coeur.
Early afternoon, continue your exploration further east to Odysseum which brings together the Mare Nostruma aquarium and the Planétarium Galilée, or push on towards the sea.
Palavas-les-Flots offers the opportunity to admire the Cathédrale de Maguelone, accessible on foot, by bike or via the petit train des plages (take note that it only operates from May to September).
MyTripTailor Advice: spend the evening on one of the private beaches that flourish on beautiful days along the coast, between Palavas-les-Flots and La Grande- Motte.
It’s your last day in Montpellier. Follow one of the many thematic guided tours offered by the tourist office, some of which take you to unsuspected places ordinarily closed to the public.
Alternatively, lose yourself in the lanes of Old Montpellier to discover its numerous mansions and for the opportunity to visit its Languedoc Museum.
Lunch in the centre or at the Restaurant du Château de Flaugergues.
In the afternoon, treat yourself to some fresh air at Château de Flaugergues before returning to the centre for an aperitif at La Panacée.
MyTripTailor tip: you can spend your last evening in the pleasant and lively Beaux-Arts quarter with its inspired cocktail bars such as Le Parfum.
