Montpellier

Montpellier is a commune in the Hérault department in Occitania in southwestern France. Its location is very advantageous: On a major axis of communication joining Spain to the west and Italy to the east, but also to the edge of the Mediterranean Sea. Montpellier is the eighth commune of France by its population.

Montpellier is my city. This is the city where I was born, I lived there for almost 25 years. I really like it!

Montpellier is one of the few cities with more than 100,000 inhabitants whose population has been increasing steadily since 1945, and this is growing, making it the most populated commune of the department of Hérault and the second More populated area of “Occitania » after Toulouse.

Since the 1990s, Montpellier has been experiencing one of the strongest economic and demographic growths in France: its environment is highlighted because it is very pleasant, its cultural life and finally its Mediterranean climate make it a city highly prized by students and people who want to move for a better living comfort.

The climate of the city of Montpellier is typically Mediterranean: temperatures are rather mild, sunny very high, days of precipitation few but sometimes violent showers and summers very dry.

Montpellier has a public transport network organized by TAM with 4 tram lines and 36 bus lines. There is Saint-Roch station located in the city center since 2005 and a new station in the sector of La Mogère will be born in 2017, on the outskirts of the city, which will then be connected to line 1 of the tramway.

There are many things to visit in and around Montpellier.

The historic center of Montpellier is called “l’Ecusson”. This name is due to its shape in shield, medieval shield and heraldic symbol. The buildings are very well preserved and you can easily walk in the small pedestrian streets. In the center, there is Place de la Comédie, which is a must when you come to visit Montpellier! Also known as the egg place for its oval shape, it is one of the largest pedestrian areas in Europe, dominated by the Comedie Opera and the Three Graces Fountain.

The Place de la Comédie is the ideal starting point for a visit to the historical center, for lovers of shopping and old stones!

On the outskirts of the town you can find pretty small vineyards and beaches (eg in the town of Palavas-Les-Flots).
