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 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!

THis is where everyone will be, people cross and recross this square to get to everywhere else in Montpellier. At Christmas the Christmas market is very close.

This is a great place with loads of bars and cafes but watch out for the pick pockets who are very professional, well dressed and work in pairs. Be very careful at the tram stop, especially if you use the ticket machine to buy a ticket.
