Replanning Trip - Toulouse, Montpellier, etc

Jump to last reply

The original plan (started a year ago) was to do this trip this month (Sept 2014). However, my wife was "tripped out" and we decided to defer until Sept 2015.

First, the ground rules. We do not rent a car in Europe and have done very well on all previous trips. We try to use trains but a few buses are ok. My wife suffers from motion sickness. We did take a minivan tour in Provence one day.

It appears our flight would arrive in Toulouse. At first I thought we'd train directly to Montpellier. Then I thought "why not a few days in Toulouse to check it out".

The "most underrated city in France" phrase got me interested in Montpellier so why not "my second most favorite city in France" for Toulouse since we'll be there anyway.

Day trips to Carcassonne and Albi were decided upon during the original planning.

Now I'm trying to decide how much time to allow for Toulouse itself.

We're not real museum goes (though we do visit the main ones sometimes). We enjoy wandering around seeing the sights and various areas of interest.

What makes it so good or not?

Please help out with this. Thanks.
