Montpellier will make you love the winter.
The weather here is mild, even in the middle of December, so there’s no question of getting cooped up. The walk begins on Place de la Comédie, in front of the illuminated Opéra Comédie. Not far from there, near the Gaumont cinema, stands a majestic, well-decorated christmas tree. It’s sure to impress and make you the star of social networks.
A quick selfie and you’ve got a record number of likes on Instagram with #montpelliernow. In fact, if you’re into photography, get ready to pull out your camera. With its facades, narrow streets and little squares, Montpellier is a very photogenic place.
Head for the Place du Peyrou, where the Christmas market is taking place as part of the Hivernales event, which will be sprucing up the Place de la Comédie.
Stalls, a Languedoc cot, gift ideas (crafts, decorations, textiles, jewellery, accessories and, of course, gastronomy), local produce and, above all… Santa’s horse-drawn carriage!
All accompanied by a glass of mulled wine!*
*Drink with moderation
