DAY OF ENJOYMENT: AUTHENTIC AND CONTEMPORARY MONTPELLIER

A day devoted to the subject of “authentic and contemporary Montpellier”


DAY EXCURSION: AUTHENTIC AND CONTEMPORARY MONTPELLIER


A full day divided between authenticity and modernity

9:30 am: Meet your guide at the Tourist Office. Relive the prodigious boom and extraordinary destiny forged by Montpellier over the centuries.

A maze of medieval streets, the 12th century Mikvé (Jewish ritual bath), the Faculty of Medicine and courtyards of private manors provide the visuals for this journey spanning a thousand years. A clever mix concocted by our guides to allow you to experience the unique atmosphere of the Ecusson. During your tour, head upwards to discover the city from the top of the Arc de Triomphe with a 360° view of the city, the sea and the Pic Saint-Loup mountain.

12:30 pm: Lunch at a restaurant in the city centre.

2:30 pm: Explore the Montpellier of today. From Antigone to Port Marianne, follow the Lez River and assemble the pieces of the giant jigsaw puzzle formed by the new neighbourhoods. Between Consuls de Mer, Jacques Cœur and the Left Bank, each one makes its own contribution to the district. Nouvel, Ricciotti and Portzamparc are just some of the great names in architecture to have designed the area.

5:00 pm: End of the tour. Free time and shopping at Odysseum, the open air shopping centre.




FROM €45/PERSON, BASED ON 20 PEOPLE: INCLUDES TOUR GUIDE, ADMISSION TO THE VARIOUS SITES AND LUNCH.
