Arrived by tram from out of town. As a first sight visiting a new place, this square gives a positive first impression. Full of life, with the history all around the side. 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

This is the true centre of the town which buzzes with life throughout the summer and has a constant menu of street entertainment and events to keep the joint jumpin'. The energy of this wonderful town flows through here and it makes a great place to start your wanderings.

I was revisiting Montpellier on a day trip having first come here on another "flying visit" in the late '90's. This oblong square has a really classy feel being lined with predominantly Belle Epoque era buildings not least the handsome Theatre at the western end. It still reminds me very much of parts of Nice of the same era. I... More

This is a great place to hang out in the evenings. Lots of restaurants and bars to choose from. The old carousel is beautiful. I had a great time watching a group dancing the tango.

It's a veru popular place in the evenings - a good food, street performers, on Fridays in the summer - the festivals with the art and crafts sellers, a different culture food, concerts, dances in the fresh air. Just wonderfull experience for the whole family.
