A day in Montpellier


A day in Montpellier

Montpellier, located in southern France and near the Mediterranean Sea, has a large student population and a cutting-edge cultural scene. The capital of the Languedob-Roussillon offers a diverse range of activities guaranteed to be enjoyed by everyone.

Place de la Comédie
The majestic building is still used for operas and considered as one of France’s most elegant provincial square. It is right in the heart of the city center, surrounded by restaurants, shops and bars. The square also contains a beautiful fountain and is close to a tram station.

Jardin des Plantes
It is France’s oldest botanical garden and a great spot to sit outside and relax. Surrounded by bamboo grove, ponds and a variety of trees and flowers, it is a great place to escape the city for a bit.

Musee Fabre
With a modern inside, the museum holds a fantastic collection of 15th to 18th century paintings and sculptures from known French artists, including Monets, Frederic Bazille and Declaroix. The museum is close to Place de la Comédie.

Cathedrale Saint-Pierre de Montpellier
The Roman Catholic cathedral is a national monument of France and the seat of the Archbishops of Montpellier. Whether or not you are into history and architecture, it is a fascinating place to visit with the exterior and interior being points of interest and worth the visit. Be ready to be awestruck.

Pic St-Loup
If you are up for a little outdoor hike be sure to include a day at the Pic St-Loup in your schedule. There are plenty of hiking paths, suitable for any desire and physical ability. As it is a big place, it is best to drive up than use public transportation. On sunny days make sure to bring plenty of water and sunscreen.

Nope, this isn't a postcard - it's just a regular day at #WineglassBay in @tasmania.

If you're heading to @tasmania, #WineglassBay is probably already on your list, but we recommend spending more than just a day here - t
