Top 10 Things to Do in Toulouse
Wander the charming narrow maze of pedestrian streets in the historical center between the Garonne and Canal du Midi before stopping for a café au lait and chocolatine – they’re not called pain au chocolat here, so don’t make that mistake. #teamchocolatine.
The 600-km river, which starts at the Mediterranean and flows north out to the Atlantic near Bordeaux, runs through the historical center of the city. Here you’ll find Toulouse’s own Pont Neuf, the city’s oldest bridge, with gaps in the arches guarding against floods. In summer, lively guinguettes (outdoor tapas bars) pop up along the banks.
Cycle beneath a canopy of plane trees along the famous UNESCO World Heritage Canal du Midi, Canal de Garonne or Canal de Brienne, which connects the two to the Garonne River.
