Sightseeing route in Montpellier

Montpellier

【City description】

It’s the principal city in the Languedoc region in the south of France. Many students live here to go to the university constructed in 13th century. We can find many photo spots in the old area. So, it’s interesting to walk around the city even if we don’t have the purpose.
