Languedoc is a veritable treasure chest of 'things to do'. For history-lovers, you can explore neolithic caves, France's most impressive roman ruins, and dramatic medieval 'Cathar' castles perched on rocky outcrops. For lovers of music, catch classical concerts in Montpellier, jazz (overlooking the sea) in Sète, and chic clubbing in beach bars all along the coast.
You'll find art in abundance. Take in an exhibition at the Musée Fabre in Montpellier, where modern Soulages installations jostle with paintings by Monet and Degas. For party-lovers, join the 'Feria' street parties of Béziers and Nîmes. Villages, abbeys, wine-tasting, natural wonders - the list of things to see and do is endless.
