Capital of the region, Montpellier impresses with its dynamism. Bathed in the soft Mediterranean light, its old quarters and its superb gardens enhance walks during the day, while theaters, cinemas and opera houses provide night life.
In full growth, the city which perpetuates its ancestral vocation for medicine and research, is transformed, giving birth to new districts with daring architecture.
Student population obliges, the faces are young on the terraces of the cafes, while the air moistened with salt evokes the nearby sea.
