Known as both MÃ©diterranÃ©e Airport and AÃ©roport de Montpellier, the city's main airport is located at 34130 Mauguio, France. Driving to the airport from the downtown area takes about 20 minutes, depending on traffic. The French Civil Aviation University can also be found at this airport, which is the 10th largest in France.
Take line 1 of the tramway from the city to Place de l'Europe. From there, board the HÃ©rault Transport Airport Shuttle Line 120. The cost for the shuttle is â‚¬4.90, but for â‚¬5.40 the tram ride is also included. Metered taxi services are available. Fares vary, but you can expect to spend around â‚¬20 for the trip.
The city has a temperate Mediterranean climate, giving it ample sunshine and hot summers. Springtime highs average about 13Â°C, and summer temperatures can reach 19Â°C or higher. Winters occasionally see temperatures fall below freezing, but the average daily high is about 11Â°C. The warm weather can last well into October, making this an ideal month for a visit if your travel dates are flexible. You can still enjoy the city's memorable outdoor sights, and the crowds tend to have thinned out from their summer peaks. If you plan to visit during the busier summer months, pack your sunscreen and bring a bathing suit. The water temperatures are quite warm, and you may just find yourself at the beach.
Take advantage of the sun, and head to Espiguette Beach. Soak up some rays and grab a bite to eat at one of the charming seaside cafÃ©s. Summer brings plenty of visitors to the beach, so arrive early if you plan to visit in July or August. When the winds pick up, try your hand at windsurfing, or simply fly a kite. Begin a day of exploration at Place de la ComÃ©die. This square is the focal point of the city, and many major attractions can be found from there. Visit the Three Graces fountain or head to the OpÃ©ra ComÃ©die for a breathtaking performance. Art lovers will enjoy the MusÃ©e Fabre, which recently underwent an extensive remodel. After a day of walking, you can pamper your tired feet with a massage at Spa de Beaulieu. If you are travelling with the family, visit the Aquarium Mare Nostrum, and spend a day enjoying the penguins and colourful fish. The Parc Zoologique Henri de Lunaret is free to visit and is a nice place to spend an afternoon. You could also finish off your holiday with an authentic French meal. Le Jardin des Sens has a selection of mouth-watering meals, exquisite wines and sparkling champagne.
