You won't be able to peel yourself away from Montpellier

Tucked in the south of France, less than 10 miles inland from the Mediterranean Sea, charming Montpellier is a rare example of a historic European city that never saw influence from the Romans. The eighth-largest city in France, it has a population over 275,000 people, nearly a third of whom are students, making for a lively atmosphere and plenty of nightlife options. A Montpellier vacation rental will put you in a maze of winding medieval streets that climb the two steep hills that make up the city. From picturesque architecture, to museums, to shopping, there's something for everyone in your group.

Things to do

The buildings may be old, but the gardens are older

Montpellier is a sightseer's dream. The centerpiece of it all is the Place de la Comedie. In the maze of streets surrounding the main square, there are historic buildings at every turn, like the 14th-century Cathedrale Saint-Pierre de Montpellier, the 18th-century Saint Clement Aqueduct, and the 17th-century Porte du Peyrou arch on the Place Royal du Peyrou promenade. There's also one tower of medieval walls left. Other must-sees are the paintings at the Musee Fabre, Montpellier Zoological Park, and Aquarium Mare Nostrum, as well as the Jardin des plantes de Montpellier, France's oldest botanical garden in France, created in 1593.
