A beautiful city with an abundance of fantastic restaurants. I would recommend La Coquille located near the L'arc de Triompe with its cous cous royale and many of the small restaurants located around Place Saint Roch such as Le Prince de Minorque. Be sure to pop into the Analog Bar on one of the side streets for a wide selection of European beers. Don't miss the people watching opportunities in the Place de la Comedie! All in all a city I would love to live in.

Beautiful Town Hall
The Town Hall in Montpellier is actually part of the much older Palais des Archeveques, which dates from the 13th century. Built in the 19th century, the Town Hall today contains a couple of museums which may well be of interest. There are some nice French paintings and some ancient Roman artefacts excavated from the city some years ago.

Walking in Montpellier and along the Promenade du Peyrou
Walking along the Promenade du Peyrou was a real highlight for me. These terraces were built in 1689 and are used as a backdrop for various events. Come here on a sunny day and enjoy the breathtaking views, which stretch as far as the Cevennes. There is also a nice equestrian statue here, depicting King Louis XIV.

The Egg-Shaped Place de La Comedie
This is a vast public plaza and located in the very heart of Montpellier. It is shaped rather like an egg and was once a busy roundabout for traffic. It is now much nicer for pedestrians like me now that it is traffic free and you can wonder around freely. The Fontaine des Trois-Graces fountain is a really eye catching centrepiece.
