Montpellier is the capital of the Hérault department as well as the Languedoc-Rousillon region. Although not terribly large, it is a vibrant city thanks to its student population. Montpellier is a gorgeous, shining and welcoming city, with a history kept within each of its stones.
Everything revolves around the central hub Place de la Comedie with its open-air cafés and entertaining street performers. The buildings that surround it are stately with the elegant 19th century Opera an exact replica of the Paris opera house.
The old town is a labyrinth of 17th century private mansions or hotels particuliers, narrow streets, interior courtyards and designer boutiques. For a complete change wander down to Le Polygone, a modern shopping centre and the Antigone, a neoclassical housing project that leads to riverside bars and restaurants.
