Centre of all
Place de la comedie
Situated between the train station, the historic city center and the Polygone shopping center, this immense, pedestrianized square is the heart and soul of Montpellier. It a mix of old buildings mixed with new (slightly pricey cafes – just of the square are some lovely cheaper ones). You can get wonderfully lost in the old town, passing weird but wonderful shops on your way. The is also a large shopping center and lots of museums. The square is a short walk away from Montpellier station and has tram stops connecting both of the city’s tram lines.
