Discover Montpellier and surroundings by car
Whether you’re in Montpellier for business or pleasure, you will instantly notice the style and panache that dominates the city. It’s an upmarket destination that’s attracted royalty and gentry for centuries with even the trams boasting a lavish design by fashion star Christian Lacroix.
There’s something to do for all ages here, with top attractions including the Fabre Museum; Promenade de Peyrou; Place de la Comédie where you’ll find a wonderful medley of bars restaurants and shops; and the towering Montpellier Cathedral. Extravagant 17th and 18th century mansions also dominate the city including Hôtel des Trésoriers de France which is well-known for its eye-catching and extravagant façade.
If you want a break from city life, the coastline is a hot spot for tourists and locals alike with one of the most popular beaches in the area being Espiguette Beach – a wild 18 kilometre stretch of sand renowned for its picturesque dunes and crashing waves. La Grande Conque is also well-worth a visit with its black sand making an unusual change from Languedoc’s white beaches.
With access to a hire car, you may also wish to venture further afield with the coastal resorts of Marseille, Toulon, Cannes and Nice being within easy reach. Lyon is to the north also and then there’s Toulouse to the west which is nestled close to the Spanish border.
Driving in Montpelier
When in France, always stay on the right hand side of the road unless you are overtaking. The roads are generally well-maintained with signs leading to many top attractions. France’s toll roads known as Autoroutes also make it quick and easy to reach other key locations. If you need to pay a toll fee you will see a sign saying à péage.
While driving throughout the city centre can be a little chaotic at times there are plenty of places to leave your car with approximately 4000 spaces available. You may also decide to park outside of the city and catch a tram to your chosen destination.
