You’ll feel like you’re in another era on this tour, as you visit a place that has stood unchanged for centuries. Firstly, after a coach ride from the pier, you’ll arrive in the town of Montpellier. This place shot to fame back in the Middle Ages for being the site of the first school of medicine, which later became a prestigious university. These days, winding medieval streets, old stone houses and 17th-century mansions set the scene – and you’ll get a guided tour of the best bits. The 19th-century façade of a theatre, a grand medieval fountain, and a statue of Louis the 14th are all on the agenda. Plus, you’ll get to see the ‘Arch of Triumph’ in Peyrou Royal Square. After your guided tour, you’ll have some free time to explore under your own steam, before making your way back to the coach.
