“Promenade du Peyrou”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

Not so much for the "porte" as for the park right next to it, which is pretty and a nice/calm place to walk around/sit on a bench and read a book.
Always a slight breeze since it is up above. Just a nice vibe to the place.

“What a Wonderful Entrance”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

We arrived in Montpelier by driving through the Porte du Peyrou. Beautiful and historic. Park opposite is nice spot for a stroll and family photographs.

“Grand scale”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

In sharp contrast to the winding alleyways of the historic centre stands the vista and scale of the Porte de Peyrou. Shady gardens, breathtaking views and an impressive viaduct. Just 5 minutes walk from the bustle around Comedie and centuries of history are at your feet. Well worth it.

“Spoilt by beggars”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

This is a lovely area on the edge of the historic centre. Spacious, clean, great views and monuments. Spoilt only by beggars with clipboards who insist that anyone who signs is agreeing to a donation. We have seen the same scam in manty places, notably Rome and Paris and find that the "talk to the hand" signal and a firm "non" works but we saw some people having a miserable time with them. I'm sure a bit of a plice presence would work wonders.

“Get your camera ready”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

One of the best places in Montpellier to take great pictures, and to enjoy! I enjoyed the view of the city, it's the one place that one can fully appreciate how gorgeous Montpellier is. Beware though, July and August are very hot in the city, and you may want to go for some shady place, if so this is not the place for you.
