Things to do in  Montpellier

Welcome to Montpellier

Though often overlooked in favor of other southern cities such as Marseille and Nice, Montpellier—with its 300 days of sunshine per year—enjoys just as much Mediterranean splendor and wealth of culture. One of France’s fastest-growing and most diverse cities, Montpellier’s large student population makes it feel lively and vital, although exploring historical landmarks such as Montpellier Cathedral, the old town of Écusson, and the Musée Fabre are among the top things to do in Montpellier. The white sands of Espiguette Beach, as well as the protected wetlands of the Camargue, are also just a short trip away.
