In the city centre there are rows of boutiques, exquisite restaurants and tiny delis. Montpellier is home to one of the oldest universities in France and thanks to many students it is also considered to be one of the youngest cities in the country. Montpellier is known not only for its beautiful historic Old Town, but also for its modern districts such as Antigone, where you will find neo-Classical buildings designed by famous Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill. “Jardin des Plantes”, Montpellier's botanical garden, is the first botanical garden in France.
