If in Montpellier, a visit to this museum is a must. An extensive collection of paintings and sculptures, all wonderfully arranged and displayed. Entrance fee is 7 euro per person. Easily accessible as it is centrally located. Lovely experience.

We are not great fans of Picasso but went to this Exhibition which chronicles his life and changes in his styles and what influenced them. It was extremely informative and well organised.
