Our daughter is studying in Montpellier, and w she asked us to meet her here. It is really lively and fun. There are several restaurants and cafes in the area. We sat and had lunch and beers and cappuccinos while watching street performers. It's a nice central area to meet, and also a great place to catch the tram.

Beautiful place. Many shops, cafés and restaurants... Easy access (tram passes through it).. I've been there twice (june 2012 and may 2014) and I can assure there is always something going on.. Enjoyable experience :)

This is where all the actions are. A beautiful square with a statue of Trois Graces at the center, a theater at one end, and several cafes and shops all around. The whole place is pedestrians only except the convenient colorful trams.

Great place to spend some time and watch the world go past. High end shopping just off the place and you are not that far away from the train station. Trams run right theprough the place so easy access and there is underground parking that pops you right up in the place. In winter there is also quite a good... More

You just cant miss it. This is the place you cant avoid! Its name takes its sense at every time of the day. There are always people here to dance, sing etc.. The lights are beautiful during the winter, plus a Christmas market close to the comedie's place really nice!

Great place for shopping, eating and drinking. Plenty of street performers dancing and singing various kinds of entertainment. Super clean and free of automobiles. the ambiance is truly spectacular at night. For the young and the older. Take a nap so you are up and ready for late night wandering.

There are loads of eateries and bars to sit and watch the world go by. At night, it is beautifully lit up. In October as the nights get chillier, several bars have outdoor heating. It is more expensive to eat / drink here than in the many other areas. Also, when having breakfast there, I was bothered several times by... More
