Montpellier is a beautiful part of France that is worth visiting. It has some very impressive 17th century architecture as well as incredible vineyards. If you get the chance to explore the city, I’d recommend it.

Explore the amazing architecture of Montpellier with this private bike-taxi tour. You get to see all the famous attractions of this French city such as Place de la Comedie and Porte du Peyrou and many more.

The tour will also come with an audio guide through a bluetooth speaker that will teach you about the history of each attraction. You will also get many photo opportunities throughout the tour so you can make your friends and family back home jealous.

Your driver will also give you good recommendations on the best places for lunch and dinner in the city.

How could you not visit Montpellier without a wine tour?

Ride through the vineyards of the famous Pic Saint Loup on electric bikes with a tour guide whilst admiring the beautiful views of the Le Causse de L’Hortus. Then enjoy the delicious wines that the Pic Saint Loup has to offer.

But it doesn’t stop there. Your tour guide, Lionel, will also show you around the beautiful local towns making for a very enjoyable tour and a great experience.

How is the Weather in Montpellier?

The Open Sud de France takes place during February which is Winter in the South of France. This means you can expect temperatures averaging around 15°C with a good chance of rain. Whilst the temperatures are not ideal, you don’t get the constant dampness and bleakness you get in other parts of France.

However, the weather won’t be a problem for the Open Sud de France as it is an indoor tournament so won’t be affected by the weather.
