Montpellier, capital of the Languedoc-Roussillon region, has a long tradition as a University city and is the home to one of the biggest and best known Universities of France - more than a quarter of Montpellier's 260.000 inhabitants study here.
Montpellier offers a beautiful historic centre with narrow picturesque streets, elegant private mansions dating back to the 16th century and many tree shaded cafés, and also an interesting cultural life. Thanks to its countless historical treasures, the city is officially called a « Ville d'Art ». Many street musicians and artists as well as a variety of famous festivals contribute to its cultural life. The warm, mediterranean atmosphere is reflected in the day to day life of the town.
Montpellier opens like an amphitheatre towards the Mediterranean with its long, sandy beaches and the étangs (lagoons) with huge colonies of wild pink flamingos. Thanks to its excellent location between Provence, the Camargue, the Cevennes mountains and the Pyrenees, Montpellier offers a wide range of excursion opportunities. The interior is fascinating and unspoilt with many gorges, creeks and picturesque villages.
