What to Expect
Explore the heart of Montpellier on a 1-hour Segway tour and discover the major sights of the city.
Founded in the Middle Ages, Montpellier is unique among the cities of the French Riviera in having no Greek origins. Instead, Montpellier grew as the result of pirate raids at the nearby settlement of Maguelone.
Flourishing after the Reformation, the city center is awash with handsome historical hotels, many during the period when Montpellier was capital of the Languedoc region, under the reign of Louis XIV.
After a brief training session on your electric self-balancing vehicles, explore the esplanade, go to the pink-marbled Corum, home to the city’s opera house, and see the Musée Fabre, founded by Montpellier painter François-Xavier Fabre.
Admire the honeyed façade of St. Pierre Cathedral, and glide through the Place de la Comédie, Montpellier’s main focal point with its centerpiece Three Graces fountain.
