Languedoc tourism

Comedie, Montpellier


A small selection of interesting towns to visit. Individual town tourist sites are included in the links section.

Our visitors have made many of these suggestions. Items with a are highly recommended.

It is, of course, a very  subjective listing, and we  apologise in advance if  somewhere does not reach  expectations, or has been  omitted.


  • Montpellier, regional capital of Languedoc Rousillon, and Herault is an old university town. Medical schools were established during the occupation by the Moors around the 9th century. The Moors, at that time, were the most advanced scientific culture in the Mediterranean basin. Today Montpellier has stunning modern architecture alongside an ancient centre. The tram makes it easy to visit the numerous art galleries and museums.
  • Nimes, the capital of Gard, was the Nemausus of Roman history. The arena (built AD or BC 0) is still in use. The old city and Maison Carre are worth visiting.
  • Arles is of interest for its extensive Roman remains and also it's artistic history.
  • Narbonne, just outside Languedoc, has fine Roman remains.
  • Mountain areas include Mt Aigoual, Anduze, Florac, Ganges, Gorge du Tarn, Mt Lozere, Mende, Millau, St Guilhem le Desert, St Hippolyte du Fort, St Enimie, Sauve, Le Vigan,
