At place de la Comedie, you usually have some attractions during the day and also at night time. A live place, amusing. Architecture is also nice.

Place de la Comedie is located right in the middle of Montpellier, city of fine Mediterranean architecture. Plenty of shops and restaurants to charm your visit in the city. For those travelling to Montpellier by car - there is an underground parking under Place de la Comedie for a reasonable price.

Tram stations, Shopping Mall (if that's what you want). Main... More

Plenty of cafes to choose from. One direction is a shopping centre, the other the historic old town and small streets. We explored first by tourist train, through... More

My first impressions were poor. Pickpockets on the prowl, lots of people shoving and shouting, dogs and their mess laying about the place and... NO SHADE in L'Oeuf at any part of the day! It's a killer. But at the right time, you can also experience some great bars and cafes. Go down some of the side streets on the... More

What we liked: people, music, view on the opera. This place is the meeting place for everyone in Montpellier. Most every tramway has a stop on the Place de la Comédie. What we liked less : homeless people, and the lack of good restaurants on the place it self.

It is the place where many activities take place, where everyone gathers, exhibitions, kiosks, etc, everywhere there is something nice and new in it. Be sure to pass there few times at least during your stay in Montpellier
