Toulouse is a stunning city in beautiful Southern France and is the fourth largest city in the country. The city centre is small and you can explore many of the most interesting places by foot. Toulouse was once the site of an ancient Roman settlement and you will notice many red brick buildings of pseudo-Roman style here which is why Toulouse has the nickname – La ville rose (The Pink City). If architecture is an interest yours, you won’t be disappointed in Toulouse. Highly recommended is the stunning church – Basilique Saint Sernin, and the beautiful mansion - Hôtel d'Assézat. You may also like to visit Les Abattoirs, which is a lovely building and Modern Arts Museum. There is also a wonderful garden here with a nice view of the Garonne River, the perfect place to sit and reflect on the beauty of Toulouse. Toulouse is also known as a hub for aviation and the space industry. In fact, one of the main attractions in Toulouse is Cité de l'Espace, which is otherwise known as “Space City” and is described as a scientific theme park but without rides. Here you can see fascinating replicas of spacecraft and a planetarium among other interesting and interactive exhibits for the whole family. While you are here you might also like to take one of the many boats tours available and if you are here at the right time you might even be able to take in an exciting Rugby match! Added to this is the wonderful nightlife and the authentic restaurants which will only intensify your cultural journey in Toulouse.Perhaps you would like to check out our other accommodation options in France while you are considering Toulouse?
