The city is rich in culture and was in the past a crossroad of several historical periods.
You must stroll on the unique pedestrian Montpellier's streets.
The faculty of medicine of Montpellier, founded in 1220, is the oldest one in Europe that is still active. The faculty has a museum of Anatomy - a real must-see, especially for medical students.
There are several hospitals in Montpellier such as Lapeyronie, Arnaud de Villeneuve, Gui de Chauliac, St Eloi...
The new building of the faculty, which modern architecture is quite a contrast to the old one from 1220 and which objective is to make it the European most advanced faculty, has opened in July 2017 and makes it both the city with the oldest and the most recent university in Europe.

There are 4 tram lines (including one going directly to the hospital and another one to the beach). There are numerous bus lines. The historical center is pedestrian.
The LC finances a tram card for 30 days per IC, its use is limitless (no limit per day).
A tram/bus ticket costs 1.60 euros, the "10 travels" card 10 euros but you won't need it since we offer you a card as said up there. The tram card allows also to lend bikes (velomagg'). A bicycle path extends from pedestrian downtown to the hospitals.
