What to do on a weekend in Montpellier?

Don't miss a thing in Montpellier!

A southern city full of traditional and contemporary treasures, Montpellier is a Mediterranean crossroads, a charming and exceptional destination. A medieval city where the town centre, Place de la Comédie, Faculté de Médecine and Place Royale du Peyrou attract visitors from around the world, Montpellier is also a modern metropolis, open to contemporary architecture, science, culture and recreation.

But it also has many other assets. A protected area, made up of various landscapes between the sea 11km away, vineyards and mountains. A typical laid back Mediterranean atmosphere. Delicious food and wine bursting with sunshine. Exceptional cultural and sporting events...

Place de la Comédie

Street Art in the city: a dreamily nice walk !

In the historical center, you don't know where to look: painted markers on Place St Roch, other trompe-l'oeil, collages, bicycles in the walls ... Here, a smiling moon painted on a trash container, there, a mosaic space invader, over there stencils with hearts ...

Without forgetting a little tour on the Verdanson quays, a veritable gallery of urban art!
