Montpellier has a few rather shady characters especially once it gets dark, but a really lovely town. Very relaxed and pleasant.
Montpellier is like an international student town. That's why it's so young, and old for its monuments and buildings. You must pay attention to the dogshit... it's everywhere!! In cyber-cafes you must be careful of your belongings. And those shady characters are the kings of the city on Sundays!! The bars are close on 1 AM in the city center, but there are the special buses to after parties out of town. These are the great clubs with entrance fees (generally 10€ including 1 free drink) and there are after after parties on the beach. Enjoy!
Sète … Sete has beautiful beaches and it's a great medium-small town that isn't trampled by tourists.
Montpellier is an ideally located and beautiful town. Unfortunately, I had more problems in five-months living there than I've had in years of traveling (mostly in the U.S., Caribbean. and Mexico, but also through much of Europe). I broke my hand defending myself and a girl who was being assaulted by a group of young men. I also had two incidents of people throwing bottles at us because we spoke English -- one said he was going to kill us and smashed in the window of our house with his fist. We called the police, they arrived two hours later and told us that if the guy came back we could "kill him" for all he cared (since there was five of us and because he was Palestinian -- there was a lot of open racism by the police there). Needless to say most experiences aren't like this and my study abroad program put me in a very shady part of town. I also refused to quit the nightlife like the other people who lived with me so I became somewhat of a target for the local riff-raff that sat on…
We visited Montpellier for 3 weeks in the Summer. It is a fantastic city with brilliant architecture. My children have asked to visit again, which we will do in October. We had no problems, and didn't notice any dogs' muck.
I´ve been in Montpellier for about 2 months and I love it. It's not as touristy as other towns in southern France, but it's still beautiful! Wander around the Comdie, go shopping, have some crepes, and party at night with friendly people. What more could you want?
