A lively cosmopolitan city Montpellier hosts thousands of students from all over the world. With a large younger population this delightful walled city has a wide diversity of attractions to offer. Undiscovered courtyards, worn cobbled roads and authentic squares, Montpelier is a city where skinny lattes meet tales of the fourteenth century and more besides.
Places to see might include its 14th Century Saint Pierre Cathedral and the overwhelming but magnificent building of the Prefecture. The lovely historic location of Chabaneau is a sight to wonder before moving on to enjoy a delicious coffee in the stunning and genuine Place de la Canourgue.
