Foreign tourists are often attracted to our beautiful capital! Of course, they choose Paris because it is a beautiful city, steeped in history. But this choice is often due to the ease of access that Paris offers from many major European cities and from most capitals around the world.
Imagine that it is almost as easy to come to Montpellier, in the South of France! Train, bus, carpooling or plane, you’re spoiled for choice.
You have little time for travel
Do you want to get away for just a week to improve your French under the Occitan sun? Your choice will no doubt turn to the plane.
Very good news for the spring-summer 2020 season, the low-cost company Transavia opens, from April 2020, new direct airlines between Montpellier and many major European cities!
Do you live in Amsterdam, Athens, Brussels, Dublin, Lisbon, Madrid or for example in Rome? Montpellier is very close to you!

We agree that if you, like us, are more green, you will have to plant a few trees to reduce your carbon footprint. To give you a better awareness, in Montpellier, during your language course, at the French Institute of Occitania, you will only use the tram, the train and the bicycle. It is so nice !
For you, travel is part of the adventure
In this case, take the train. Since 2018, Montpellier has had a 2nd Montpellier Sud de France station, you can benefit from advantageous rates if you choose this station and you will then only need to take a shuttle and a tram (40 minutes) to reach the city center. Otherwise, the Saint Roch train station is more central and a 10-minute walk from our French school.
Beyond its practical and financially interesting aspect, using the train also means giving yourself more chances to meet and start practicing your French with other passengers, controllers or even the waiter of the restaurant car. . Take the opportunity also to admire the very varied landscapes of Occitania: mountains, scrubland, olive and fruit fields, rivers and streams are also very present.
For those who’re not in a hurry, there is also the possibility of traveling by bus (advantageous rates and serious companies: Flixbus and Ouibus) or by carpooling because Blablacar now connects the main European cities! And there, the discussion in French is assured because “the blabla” is the art of chatting, chatting, chattering. All these subtleties of our beautiful language, it is with your French teacher, that you will learn them when you finally arrive, with us, in Montpellier.
