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.
