Montpellier is one of the largest cities in the south of France. Even though it is smaller than Marseilles and Nice, Montpellier is a university city, with more than one third of its population being university students. This gives the city a unique vibe, that none of the other, larger cities have. The great climate, great food and great wine add to the experience and make Montpellier one of the most fun places to be in France. When it comes to weed and hash, you should be able to get some, even if you do not know any locals.
