How to Spend 2 Days in Montpellier

How to Spend 2 Days in Montpellier

Both Montpellier and the surrounding Languedoc region offer plenty in terms of historic highlights. With two days in Montpellier, you’ll have ample time to experience the city’s food, wine, and history. Here’s how.

Day 1: Highlights of Montpellier and Sète

**Morning:**Devote your first morning to visiting local attractions, the bulk of which are in the Ecusson area and can be easily accessed on walking or Segway tours. Highlights include the Fabre Museum, the verdant Esplanade de Charles de Gaulle, and the Museum of Montpellier, which traces the city's history.

 

**Afternoon:**In the afternoon, make your way to the nearby port city of Sète. Here, a plethora of restaurants serve up freshly-caught seafood; consider a food tour if you want to sample a variety of local dishes and don't miss a visit to Mont Saint-Clair, a hilltop chapel with views over the Mediterranean.

 

**Night:**If you have energy left in the evening, you may want to consider a visit to the town of Marseillan, where Vermouth originates. Here you can visit a vermouth distillery to learn all about and sample the popular drink, or even learn how to make it yourself.

 

Day 2: Wine and History of Languedoc

**Morning:**The Languedoc region is known for its fantastic wine, so spend day two exploring the surrounding area to sample local delights. Popular half-day options include visits to olive oil producers followed by lunch at a local restaurant. 

**Afternoon:**Devote the afternoon to local wineries. Most tours from Montpellier head to the area around the mountain of Pic Saint-Loup, which has a unique terrain unlike elsewhere in the region. Don’t miss a stop in Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, a historic city situated on the Camino de Santiago.  


**Night:**In the evening, return to Montpellier where you’ll have even more gastronomical options to choose from. Although you may be tempted to plop down at a local restaurant, consider a culinary tour if you want to try as many types of dish as possible.
