Destination Toulouse

 
Toulouse is France’s fourth biggest city and is ideally situated between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean in the South-West of France.  
Its 2000-year-old history shows in an architecture of brick and tiles which are typical of the cities, villages and farms of the Midi-Pyrenees region. Reflections of the golden light on the brick of Toulouse have given it the name of ‘Ville Rose’ (Pink City).
 
Toulouse is a very lively city. There’s nothing like a stroll around the historic centre, walking alongside the Garonne and the Canal du Midi, or stopping in one of the many cafés with terraces that spill out onto the streets.
 
Toulouse is also a major shopping destination. All the renowned brands in fashion, design and leather goods are represented in Toulouse. The city neighbourhoods also live by the rhythm of the open-air and covered markets. Here you'll fin local products from the Midi-Pyrenees, which is one of the South-West's most important gastronomic regions - producing wine, foie gras, cheese, charcuterie, and of course cassoulet - the local dish par excellence.
