Daytrips from Montpellier & Toulouse

Jump to last reply

This trip isn't yet set in stone but I should have plane tickets set within a week or so.

We should be going in early September. At this time it appears we'll be arriving in Toulouse and leaving from Paris.

If that's the case we'll spend either 3 days (1 daytrip) or 4 days (2 daytrips) in Toulouse leaving for Montpellier in late afternoon of the last day.

Then we'll either spend 4 or 5 days based in Montpellier (depends on how many we spend in Toulouse). We'll probably do 2 or 3 day trips from Montpellier (depending upon the length of the stay) and leave for Paris in late afternoon where we'll spend 3 complete days.

We've been to Paris several time (most recently 2 years ago at the end of our trip to Provence) so we've got that covered.

Day trips from Toulouse appear to be 1) Carcassonne and 2) Albi. Others I should consider instead?

In general we like to wander around and see the sights. While we'll visit the odd museum, we're not really big museum goers. We do not rent a car and try to travel by train but will go by bus if necessary.

I'm a little uncertain about day trips from Montpellier. Looking for suggestions.

Previous suggestions have been Narbonne, Beziers, Sete, Aigue-Mortes. If these are the ones then trying to prioritize. Reason for one over the other.

Thanks.
