    We had a wonderful walk here yesterday; we did the 'Tamaris' walk that is about six kilometers and an easy walk. At first, we saw about a dozen storks on their nests high in the trees or man-made platforms. Quite a sight. Later there are so many species of birds to see, including the emblematic pink flamingos. You can take the tram line Lattes Centre (terminus) and from there it is a pleasant 30-minute walk to the Nature House and beginning of trails.

    A good place for refreshments, photo taking.
    I like taking a walk there just to admire the beautiful view of the surrounding.

    We visited on the first Sunday of the month so it was free entry, but I would have been happy to pay as the collection was massive and had lots of great paintings

    Particularly pretty when the sunlight comes through the stained glass and "colors" the columns. Worth a visit but be aware of the climb up and down (if you are coming from the center of town) to get to it - fortunately there are railings available to make your way down to the cathedral - I would not want to try it on a rainy day, even with those railings. Note that the closing time (it was 1700 when we were there) is taken strictly, so be aware of that as well when you plan your visit.

    My wife and I visited Montpellier during and excursion on a Viking Ocean Cruise last November. It was a lovely city but the on and off rain spoiled some of our enjoyment. We saw the Arch de Triumph at a distance but the weather prevented us from walking to the site. We liked much of the architecture downtown. Hopefully, we can visit again during good weather because I like the vibe of the city.

    Very good views from here and a good spot for a picnic on a sunny day. Markets held regularly in the grounds.

    Place de la Comedie is a wonderful square in old town Montpellier. My wife and I visited during an excursion on a Viking Ocean Cruise this past November. The architecture is very French and very ornate. We loved it.

    You can see part of this aqueduct from the Esplanade and it is indeed impressive especially to think of its age and how it was built. And it stretches for a long distance.

    Very nice experience for children and teenagers, they can learn and appreciate the water life of our planet. Ticket price is reasonable and attendants friendly. Great chances to take pictures.

    It’s FREE and belongs to the University! However, parts of it are only open intermittently and our visit did not coincide with those times, so we missed the medicinal study collections.There are some large (locked) glass houses, seemingly sheltering cacti. We saw a couple of frogs in a pond, and there is a bamboo grove. A shady place, but rather overgrown. Some few remains of an earlier garden. By October, most of the flowering plants were over, but we did see a couple of colourful pomegranates on a tree. Sadly the upper entrance was shut, so we had to walk back to the lower one to leave.

    It got my attention this zoo while looking for activities in Montepellier because, to be honest, first said it was for free and then when we went it was beauiful and the animals well taken care but the Amazonas (which has an cost) was closed.

    My wife and I toured Chateau de Flaugergues during an excursion on a Viking ocean cruise. The chateau looks impressive from the outside. However, the most interesting fact about the chateau is that it is only one room deep. It was apparently built to look majestic but the owner didn’t want to go to the expense to add more rooms.
