The second city we went to after Marseille was Montpellier. This is one city I’ve never managed to visit and I have to say that it was a wonderful place. The old city if full of interesting streets and shops and there is a central area called Place de la Comedie which I’m sure was much more beautiful before bisected by the tramway which runs there. I took the tramway from a huge new shopping mall into Montpellier. It was new and clean and there is a train every five minutes. I was really impressed with this city. It is packed with young people being a university city which makes it lively and full of places to eat and drink.
