Greetings from Montpellier
Bus or train from MPL to Caux?
Does anyone know if there's a bus or a train from the MPL airport to Caux?
The taxi fare is about 80 Euros and I'm trying to minimize the cost.
Also, how far away is MPL airport from the train station? If I were to take a taxi rather than the shuttle bus any idea on the fare?
Thanks very much for your kind assistance.
RE: Bus or train from MPL to Caux?

Travel Tips for Montpellier
go to the Saintes Maries de la...
go to the Saintes Maries de la Mer (département of Bouches du Rhone). According to the tradition, two saint women went on the shore of the sea to settle the city of Saintes Maries de la Mer. They were named Marie Jacobé and Marie Salomé (no link with Sister Act and Woopy Golberg). Their statues are in the church (SEE THE TRAVELOGUE).
But the town is mainly known because of sainte Sara who is the patroness of gypsies who make a pilgrimage yearly to prey the Black Virgin.

Oppidum of Enserune on the South West of Beziers on the nationale 9. It is located on the summit of a hill and dominates an ancient drained lake (the pond of Montady). The soil is curiously cultivated. It is also possible to visit the ruins of the Oppidum which was built in the 5° centurie AC.
The Parc-musee des Dinosaures.
Here the dinosaurs came to lay directly in the earth. The scientists have found in Meze an amazing number of eggs hatched or not with several skeletons. They are presented in exibit in the park with the excavation. I am not sure the brontosaurus skeleton is a local.
"A blue tram!"
Located 50 km SW of Nimes and 3-1/4 hours via TGV from Paris, the university city of Montpellier is one of the liveliest cities in the south of France. The capital of the Languedoc-Roussillon region, Montpellier is centered around the oblong place de la Comedie (known as “l’Oeuf” or “the egg”), home to a number of cafes and boutiques, in addition to the ornate 19th-century opera house.
The city suffered major damage during the Wars of Religion and was largely rebuilt in the 17th century. Situated between the mountains and the Mediterranean Sea the city can best be viewed from the Promenade de Peyrou, an 18th-century square featuring formal gardens and the end of the 18th-century aqueduct modeled on the Pont du Gard.
"Tour de Constance & ramparts"
"Walking on the ramparts"
The ramparts are accessible by the Porte de la Gardette.
Price : 3.80 Euros (kids : 2.50 Euros)
"The roofs of Aigues Mortes"
The statue of Saint Louis stays in the far end of the street.
"Horses of Camargue"
According to the legend, Neptune was making his morning trip in Mediterranea with his 6 white horses, in front of the Rhone. He saw a man swimming in the sea. But the man did not have pleasure and was worrying because he saaid to be obliged to go in the water.
The God asked why. The man answerd it was because there is a wild bull which charged at him every time he was on the soil.
Neptun was a good man (I apologize "a good god") and he gave him one of his white horses to control the bull.
It was the first horse of Camargue.
They are so beautiful because they are a gift of a god.
