    The centre of Montpellier is a traffic-free zone and due to its compact size, many of the sightseeing attractions are easily accessible on foot. Traffic in the city is usually slow during summer months. For day trips we recommend Marseille, a two-hour drive east, or Perpignan, which is a two-hour drive to the southwest. Familiarise yourself with local driving regulations and make the most of your stay with a car hire in Montpellier.


    There are several Tram+Ride facilities at the end of tram lines 1 and 2. There are also many public car parks in the city. One of the cheap options is Polygone shopping centre parking.
