Walking tours of Montpellier

The old city's pedestrian streets are well worth exploring. Hidden behind grandiose oak doors are the 'hôtels particuliers,' with their intricate staircases and secret courtyards built in the 17th and 18th centuries. To gain access to these hôtels simply take a tourist office guided tour of the city.

We recommend you purchase 'The City on Foot' by Simon Barnard & Francis de Richemond, Editions Espaces 34

An illustrated guide for strollers, walkers and explorers, with a map, historical notes and details of monuments, curiosities and museums.

Two walking tours of the city centre (and a number of alternative routes) :
· 'Short tour' : a quick visit in one hour.
· 'Full tour' : explore the whole of the historic centre in two and a half hours.
