Welcome to Toulouse

City description  

The capital of southwest France and nicknamed the "pink city", Toulouse is well-renowned throughout all of France. A city crossed by the Garonne, dedicated to sport and with an Occitan lifestyle, Toulouse is very different from the rest of France's major cities. It's an exceptional place, with the uniqueness of its pink bricks and red tiles that have earned it its nickname.

You're aware of its special feel as you walk down the streets and avenues that flank the central square: the famous Place du Capitole. And this French originality can only be appreciated by losing yourself a little in the center, with its old village atmosphere, as you stumble across the imposing Saint-Sernin basilica, nothing more, nothing less than the largest preserved Romanesque church in Europe. The grandeur can be experienced as you enter the huge Museum of Natural History of Toulouse, dating from the nineteenth century. A completely different atmosphere awaits you as you stroll through the Jardin des Plantes. More than just another Toulouse attraction, this is an ode to relaxation and to our ecosystem that you will discover as you walk through the 7 hectares of greenery, populated by multicolored ducks and mythological heroes, petrified in marble and bronze. Then take a walk along the banks of the Canal du Midi, a stone's throw away, to experience a quiet interlude, shaped by the charms of the last century - an unmissable place for those who want to discover the soul of Toulouse. When night falls, this can also be discovered as you face the Theatre du Capitole and savor a traditional Toulouse confit de canard. The biggest foodies will be keen to try the sacrosanct cassoulet and dive right into the gastronomic folklore of Midi-Pyrénées. If you have the time take a trip to the stadium of Toulouse where you can enjoy a rugby match that will give you a pretty good flavor of the local party atmosphere…
