The convention centre in Montpellier doubles up as an opera house, which gives it fantastic acoustics and expansive spaces. Each year the city hosts many conventions, including the Montpellier Tattoo Show. However, as a relatively new tattoo convention, it is still coming into its own, but is worth a visit for those who love ink.
Not surprisingly, Montpellier hotels serve cosmopolitan dishes. This is thanks to the city's generally modern atmosphere, which makes way for dishes from around the world. Stepping away from the touristy areas is the best way to get your hands on some authentic coffee brewed by an enthusiastic and skilled barista.
High-end clothing lovers should go to centre-ville, where designers and independent boutiques rest side-by-side. No matter where your Montpellier hotel is, you can take the blue line tram to Mosson. At Mosson, you will find a market with plenty off locals displaying an array of intriguing goods and ready to haggle. For unique gifts with the essence of Montpellier, head off to explore Rue de l'Ancien Courier.
Make the most of Les Jardin des Plantes and give yourself a chance to relax as you walk among tropical trees and flora. If you have an interest in neo-classical architecture, try The Antigone District. There is also a free zoo in Montpellier, with lions, bears, and more. The Montpellier Cathedral was built in 1364 and if you are a fan of architecture then it is worth a visit.
Rugby is one of the most popular Montpellier sports, especially the Montpellier Herault Rugby team. At the Stade de la Mosson, you can enjoy association football in a comfortable atmosphere. Also, the local baseball team is often at the top of the French league.
