Explore Toulouse

One of France’s most beautiful cities, Toulouse is known as La Ville Rose, or the pink city. Often used as a gateway to the Pyrenees, Toulouse is a fabulous tourist destination unto itself. Take in the grandeur of Toulouse Capitole, wander the Roman Ampitheatre or the winding lanes of the Old Quarter, and ogle Basilique St. Sernin. Stroll or snooze in beautiful La Prairie des Filtres, stop for a spot of people watching in St Pierre Place, or make your way from one side of the Garonne river to the other via Pont-Neuf bridge. If all that sightseeing has worked up an appetite, you’re in for a treat – Toulouse is renowned for its gastronomy. Specialties include cassoulet stew and duck of all varieties, including decadent confit. Whatever you order, be sure to wash it down with a glass of local Gaillac or Fronton wines, and finish with a croquants or two (almond and sugar biscuits.) If you choose self-catering Toulouse accommodation, you can also take advantage of the fabulous Victor Hugo market, home to a dizzying array of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and cheeses. Not only will you save money on dining out, you’ll get to shop amongst the locals for a true taste of Toulouse life.

When to go to Toulouse

With incredibly long summers and equally short winters, Toulouse makes a great year round holiday destination. If you visit Toulouse in December, you can also enjoy the city’s beautiful Christmas Market on Place du Capitole.
