City overview

Some refer to this rapidly growing metropolis as an afterthought of Toulouse, but it has enough irreplaceable character to stand on its own two feet without comparison. Others say that this city is southern France’s answer to Barcelona, but once in Montpellier, you realise that this dazzling seaside location has its very own unique personality, and needs no predecessor to define it. 

Students make up a quarter of the population, infusing the area with intellectual spirit, creative energy, and youthful ideas. Twenty-somethings crowd into bars and cafes with friends, brightening the atmosphere and injecting a jovial essence into the night. Because of its aforementioned rapid growth, when you travel to Montpellier, it may seem that small bouts of construction spring from every corner. In a way, it is what it feels like. New investments like a second metro line, and other more efficient, modern advancements are being instated to ensure that Montpellier physically grows with its population, cradling the residents and welcoming new ones as it develops. Its forward reaching goals and its historically reverent attitude keep Montpellier on a swing set of back and forth appreciation.
