We arrived in Friday in Montpellier and spent the first weekend there. On Sunday we did a day trip to the fishing town Sète. On Monday we left for Nice and stayed there until Friday.
Q & A
What would you have changed?
If we were there by car, we could’ve went to the nature for a hike. By train this was not really possible. But still, in terms of time the train was the better option (only 6 hours instead of 11h+ by car) .
Anything go wrong during the trip?
We had some delays when taking the train from Montpellier to Nice. We just took a later train from Marseille to Nice, but we weren’t sure if we were allowed to take that one with our ticket. We haven’t been checked, so we might have been lucky.
How was the food?
There are some nice places in Rue Bonaparte
What tips would you give a friend?
It was a quite expensive trip because of the trains, the fact that we stayed at two Airbnbs (you pay twice for service and cleaning) and the restaurants and bars. Just be prepared to spend money :)
We came by train (Thalys from Brussels to Montpellier) and it was so nice to be in the South of France in only 6 hours! It was expensive (€150 for a single ride), but still cheaper than the flights. In France we took the train from Montpellier to Sète and from Montpellier to Nice.
Airbnb, Thalys and SNCF for the trains.
