We set off from Barcelona and headed out to Montpelier, France which is in the Languedoc region. Our plan was to stop at one city in each region we crossed on our way to Monaco. My overall impressions of Montpelier is that it was nice, but there wasn't a lot to do without a car. I'm sure the region would've been amazing if we had a better way to get around, but for our walking/bussing/training only travel, it wasn't the greatest hub ever. That being said, I'm still happy we went, as the city and people were truly lovely.
We were off to our next region, Provence, and stayed in Aix-en-Provence. Aix seemed quite a bit pricier than Montpelier and I got the impression that more wealthy tourism occurred in this region. That isn't meant to be good or bad, just an observation.
The next post will contain our final leg of the trip: Nice and Monaco!!
