A very busy and happening square in the whole Montpellier with loads of cafe, shops and restaurants. Beware of petty crimes such as pick pockets while you are there. The local are usually very helpful. Ought to visit once in day time and once at night when the buildings are litted up.

This is a my 15th or so visit to Montpellier and I never pass up a visit to this square. It's one of most beautiful in the south of France if not all of France. It's a great place during the day or evening to sit in a cafe, have a glass of wine and watch the life of Montpellier.

Place de la Comedie is perhaps one of the most famous tourist attractions in the city and this is for a reason. All the surounding buildings are very art nouveau/deco and it always has a very special feel to it. Also the famous fountain itself is a must see and and classic selfie spot. Come here for a nice coffee... More

Nearly all the main streets radiate from this square this is the best starting point for exploring the city, there are lots of side streets with quirky shops as well as the better known ones on the principal pedestrian streets. By all means enjoy a coffee on the cafe terraces but be aware that it most likely to cost you... More

This is the main square of the city where people gather for events. It's surrounded by the old theater and building with beautiful facades.

The centre of the city; very pretty and open with some nice restaurants, a close walk from most things (especially the biggest art gallery and the Jardin des Plantes). Montpellier is a hidden gem!

You have to at least have a coffee here just to enjoy doing a bit of the "people watching"! ..so many strolling through, different nationalities;more locals outside of sulmmer time. It's big and airy, very near everything else, like the "Centre Historique", or the big shop on the corner, Monoprix.Full of restaurants and cafés; very french! - a covered market,... More

It's a cool public place, but there wasn't too much happening. Pop in if you're in the neighborhood, but don't go out of your way.

They say that everyone in Montpellier passes through the Place de la Comedie at some point to get anywhere - I think it's true!
