Fully loaded with character, the instantly likable city of Montpellier is found in France's south west region of Languedoc-Roussillon. Full to bursting with sights and attractions, Languedoc offers sea, mountains, sun and vineyards. Montpellier, a growing university town undergoing development continues to maintain its small town charm with many a cafe terrace upon which to while away an hour (or two).
With lots of changes constantly afoot in Montpellier, expect the unexpected if returning after a few years. The city centre has been recently transformed near the Place de la Comedie. A recent change is that of a newly constructed conference and music centre within a beautifully landscaped esplanade which never fails to impress a passing eye.
Be prepared for some degree of disruption about parts of the town with the building of a second tramline underway.
This is said to be completed and fully enjoyed by visitors and Montpellier locals in 2006. This is planned to coincide with the reopening of the Musee Fabre when the extensive refurbishment programme is completed and its important Flemish and Spanish masterpieces are once again presented to an adoring audience.
