The City of Montpellier : An Introduction
Ina poll a few years ago, Montpellier was voted the city where most French people would like to live. Much of the centre is traffic-free with open spaces, pedestrian streets and lively squares. The large Place de la Comedie has the most central tramstop and is also the location of the Tourist Office.
Montpellier’s brightly painted trams are part of the city’s charm and a major form of transport together with the bicycle. For many locals cycling is the preferred mode of travel.
Montpellier has an international student population, many of whom come to study at the acclaimed medical school; founded in the 12th century. The mix of cultures gives a lively cosmopolitan buzz to the city, and contributes to its positive and friendly atmosphere.
Montpellier was at the height of its economic power in the middle Ages, and today it is once again in the ascendant. The historic and the modern contrast beautifully here; from mansions in the old town to the ultra-contemporary angles og Antigone.
