This is basically as soulless modern / faux Greek apartment complex without any real street life. If you want to go go but there’s no reward at the end of the walk down from Place de la Comedie to the river Lez.

I'm sure some people admire this assembly of modern architecture, but me not so much. There are some restaurants and cafes, but the few times I was there it was pretty dead. Seems a big missed opportunity. Served by the tram and a short walk...More

Found myself with a couple of hours to spare whilst my wife explored the nearby Polygone shopping centre, so used part of it to explore this area from the Polygone down to Le Lez river. A contrast to the ancient quarter of the city but...More

A truly hideous post-modern monstrosity. Reminded me of some of the more soulless Stalinist architecture of Eastern Europe.

A nice district where you can walk around and enjoy life. Nice restaurants and a farmers market on Wednesdays. The buildings are nice and built in a style you could think they were older than they are. It's nice to walk through Antigone all the...More

Well worth the walk through the ghastly shopping centre to get to this amazing area. Built in a faux romantic style but on a grand movie set scale. Lots of cafes to stop for a drink. Really well thought out but seems to be little...More

Come take a look if curious. But it lacks soul. Tries to make up for it with some really odd looking fountains and huge pedestrian walkways.

This is a very strange and rather charmless area. The architecture is faux classical Roman style and looks as tacky as it sounds. Unlike the rest of the city, it was completely deserted the afternoon we visited. I wouldn’t recommend going out of your way...More

Montpellier, unlike its neighbors -Nimes, Arles, Orange deprived of Roman heritage due to youth. There is no amphitheater, no arc de Triomphe, not even a couple of columns. The mayor of Montpellier Jacques Freres decided this problem radically. He built an antique himself. With the...More

I like this place with its tree-lined streets and walkways. Coming from a California perspective, this small place offers a whole lot within walking distance. The architecture brings with it a Greek influence and is high density living. There is an olympic swimming pool that...More
