Montpellier and around
Montpellier is one of France's oldest University cities with Paris and Toulouse (XIII Century), and has become today a major hub for research on environment and development issues. The city is located on hilly ground 10 kilometers (6 mi) inland from the Mediterranean Sea coast on the banks of the Lez River. The medieval center, “the Ecusson”, gives to the city its unique and intimate feeling. We hope that you will take this opportunity to enjoy the social and cultural life of the City and to visit the unique surrounding (natural and Unesco World Heritage sites).
