Near to the historical centre, the arc de triomph, the comedy has a charm of old European city centre. There are amazing restaurants to choose from, lovely street musicians and artists performing their art, a cinema hall, and many beautiful shops to have a look at. The place is alive with activities till very late in the night and is... More

I believe the historic area of Montpelier has been underrated. If you include the area of the Acqueduct, the food market, the old town pedestrian area, the Opera and the old churches etc in this area it is signifcant. all of this cannot be a 1.5 mile diameter area. Very clean and well presented. We have been to many "old... More

This is the main square of Montpellier, and if you are a tourist you should not miss it even if you just spend 10 minutes here.Many restaurants, bars, shops and a nice park at the end of the perspective.It has a very bohemic air, so don't miss this out.

A windswept, wintery day certainly didn't show Place de la Comedie's best! It's certainly big and worth a look but not particularly attractive. The park at the opposite end to La Comedie was decidedly shabby with a few too many down-and-out people for my liking. I wouldn't want to be around there in the mid to late evening. There would...

the Place de la Comedie is one of those places where you can find pretty much anything, from the street performers, to the what feels like a billion coffee shops, to the students walking after class, it gives you pretty much the big picture of what the life in the south of France feels like, is busy with people and...
