There is plenty of information about Montpellier available online, which can be very useful to people planning on visiting the area.

            A good place to begin doing some research is on the Montpellier Tourism Office Website.  The actual office is located in the city center and is open seven days a week, but most of the information found there is also available at this site.  The Access Montpellier link can be a very useful tool, as it explains how to get to the city by plane, train, or car.  Like most tourist sites, this one has plenty of information about issues such as where to stay, what to do, where to eat, and where to shop.

            A good place to find information about the region in which Montpellier is located is at the Languedoc Roussillon Tourist Office Website.  This site also offers a Montpellier Information page.

            A good way to get to know an unfamiliar area better is by studying its geography.  Get started by looking at a Regional Map of France, a Map of the Languedoc Roussillon Region , and a Map of Montpellier.
