Place de la Comédie is Montpellier main square and belongs to the old part of the city. All big events are organised in this square, and everybody comes there while walking around the city, it cannot be avoided. In summertime you'll see a lot of people sitting on the ground talking, eating ice creams, or even playing cards! Place de... More

After hearing and reading a lot about this place, I was somewhat disappointed - I expected one of those typical mediterranean squares - teeming with people and perfect for people watching. In summer this is probably true, in January/February a little less so. The square really is the heart of Montpellier, situated between the historic center (Ecusson) and the modern... More

Full of life by day, beautifully lit by night. A good meeting point for Montpellier in the tradition of european squares.

The hub of the city, bright vibrant especially with the colourful trams pulling in every few minutes. Plenty of pavement cafes serving food and drinks from breakfast to dinner.
