...About it. And the constant trams which ply to and fro. I'd head up into the ancient quarter and that will put it all into context. BUT, it is beautfully done and the Opera House looks magnificent...

This is where the people watchers go and why not? Overlooked by the majestic Opera, the Place de la Comedie has expensive cafes lining one side of the square and trams, stalls and the obligatory carousel on the other side. Watch out for beggars but enjoy the accordionists, street artists and other performers.

Great Christmas Market just off the place, large helpful tourist info center at the far corner. Plenty of great bars and restaurants surround the place. Patio seating in December with ample heat lamps. .

The atmosphere, the old Comedy Theater, the crowds, the cafees for a sip of wine. That is the South of France at its best.

montpellier is well placed between the sea at Palavas and the "arriere" countryside and more remote villages bordering the cevennes and the larzac. Is a good centre for musical activities, all sports and even history. Has a very good art gallery, possibly the best outside Paris, but this has not encouraged any local strength in the visual arts which I consider poor, including the so called stars such as Soulages. As for architecture there are a large number of star architects projects but in my opinion they are all arrogant political statements and are conceptually mediocre, even Hadids archives building, a waste of public money on an in-flexible concrete box that has nothing internally to redeem it, certainly abandoning "form following function" and the detailing is apalling. Just off the Comedie one can vivit the Antigone designed by Bofil a Catalan who should have known better than to ignore the culture of the Med so its another failure like the new town hall on the banks of the river Lez which ignores the potential of that as a site.
