If you want to go for a walk in the south of France, this is the place to be for a few days.
Montpellier is the 7th largest city in France, which gives it an essential place in the local influence of Occitania. So, if you want to go for a walk in the south of France, this is the place to be for a few days. Below you will find our 3 best things to do in this city.
1. Enjoying a stroll through the historic centre and the Place de la Comédie
Montpellier is famous for the Place de la Comédie. Very lively thanks to its many bars and restaurants, but also thanks to the street shows, it is one of the largest pedestrian areas in France. Thanks to the tramway line that crosses it, it is very easy to access. The Fontaine des Trois Grâces reigns supreme on the square. The Opéra de la Comédie, which gives its name to the square, also sits on the square.
From here, you can start your walk in the historic centre, rich in architecture, restaurants, shops of all kinds, but also historic monuments such as the Saint Roch church. Getting lost in the narrow streets is very pleasant, as most of the city centre is pedestrianised.
It is because we love our region that we have launched the Souvenir By Chloé range and we are particularly proud of our city: Montpellier. Please, discover our website here: http://souvenirbychloe.com
