Traffic Information

You will find our car hire in Montpellier desk in the vehicle rentals building just outside the arrivals hall. Once rental cars are collected the city is less than half an hours drive away on the D66 road. At Montpellier St Roch our desk is in the new concourse and the station is linked to the city centre by tram or bus. Our Montpellier/BMW office is located in the Grim Passion dealership on Route du Pont de Guerre on the outskirts of the city and near the E80 motorway.

You will find a Sat Nav helpful in Montpellier as its signage can be confusing at times and the historic district has strict traffic restrictions. The city centre can become very congested at peak hours. Once away from the town there are fast road links along the coastline and across the region. Although choosing minor roads adds time to journeys they do offer much more scenic driving.

There are several pay-and-display car parks in central Montpellier or if you plan on visiting the pedestrianised historic district, there is ample parking at the end of each tram line.

As Montpellier is quite a spread out city and the nearest beaches are around 7 miles away the best way to start your visit is by taking a leisurely drive in your rental vehicle. As you drive to the coastal Etang de l'Or and the beaches you will go past the Aquarium Mare Nostrum. This large contemporary building has plenty of fun and educational hands-on exhibits including unique sea storm and hurricane simulators. Montpellier Zoo also makes a great day out for the family. Its large outdoor areas are home to animals from across the globe and it also features an indoor Amazonian Rainforest display. Other places to visit include the Musee Fabre with its art exhibits and the grandiose Cathédrale Saint-Pierre.

Montpelliers History of Science

Among the varied architecture of Montpellier you will find the medical school, the oldest in Europe, on the Rue de l'Ecole de Médecine near St Peter's Cathedral. In fact, this medical school which is still active is one of the oldest in the world. Visit the tourist office and book a tour of the school's Anatomy Museum, its splendid horrors are not for the faint-hearted. The entrance to the school is dominated by statues of two famous professors. Peyronie graduated as a master barber-surgeon in 1747 at the tender age of 17, later becoming court surgeon to Louis XV. The other statue is of Barthez who graduated in 1756 when only 20. Luckily, todays graduates are expected to have a little more experience.
