French flair in this sunny, seaside city
Fancy an ever-sunny destination packed with history and culture? Book a flight to Montpellier and visit the Citadel, play a game of petanque with the locals and relax on the beach. Montpellier also boasts its own impressive Arc de Triomphe. And then there is Le Jardin des Plantes, France’s oldest botanical garden.
Unwind in the city centre
Place de la Comédie is Montpellier’s dynamic centre. On sunny days—and Montpellier can claim 300 of those a year—enjoy a drink at one of the square’s outdoor cafés while being entertained by street artists. If you’re in for retail therapy, go shopping in the numerous unique shops in the medieval streets surrounding the square. Or visit the magnificent Opéra Comédie that is also situated on the square. Foodies can indulge themselves in Les Halles Laissac, a covered market with all kinds of culinary titbits. Montpellier is the ideal destination for weekend holidays or a perfect starting point for a longer vacation in France. Treat yourself: book a flight to Montpellier now!
Plunge into the ocean and the nightlife
Visit Planet Ocean for an immersive journey into the oceans and into the cosmos. If you prefer the actual sea, plan a day at Plage de L’Espiguette, one of France’s prettiest beaches. At night, enjoy refined French cuisine in one of the many restaurants. Still not tired? Then plunge into the nightlife. As a quarter of Montpellier’s population consists of students, your search for a exciting bar or club shouldn’t take too long.

ARTS & CULTURE
In Montpellier, where the sun almost always shines (300 days of sunshine a year!), the Promenade du Peyrou is a beautiful spot to cool off. Due to its higher elevation, the Promenade often catches a pleasant breeze. It also offers a beautiful view of the hinterland and coastline. Various monuments ooze history: the extensive park has been around since the days of the Sun King, Louis XIV.
ARTS & CULTURE
Sunny, beautiful and delightful: Montpellier is simply one of the loveliest cities in France! It’s easy to fall in love with the historic centre Écusson and the maze of old alleyways and narrow streets, packed with elegant town houses, trendy stores and restaurants. This city in the south of France is an authentic university town with live music on almost every corner and patios that are packed until late at night.
