It was the 4-th time for me in Montpelier. The main square of the sity is really beautifull with its fountains and cafes full of people. If you go up the street you will find plenty of cafes that are mach better, than that on the square.

The Place de la Comedie definitely is the heart of Montpellier. It is surrounded by beautiful buildings and packed with people strolling or enjoying a break at one of the many sidewalk cafes.

This place reminds me of Piccadilly in London but on a smaller scale!.....a lot going on with plenty of places to eat just off the square.

There is never a dull moment on the Place de la Comedie! From the great little cafes, to enormous salads, to just having a glass of wine and watching life go by, this is the place to be in Montpellier!
