Toulouse is a City in France

Aug 25, 2007
Toulouse is a city in southwest France on the banks of the Garonne River, half way between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea.

The journey to downtown Toulouse is 15 minutes. A bus shuttle service connects the airport to the city station every 20 minutes. Transport is quiet reliable and easily accessible throughout France. Car hire is also a good choice here, for more detail plans.

Known as the Ville Rose the Pink City for its distinctive brick architecture, is host to a rich and diverse culture. It has a thriving scene of unusually beautiful graffitis, with the painter Miss Van at its forefront.

Toulouse is an absolute must for everyone wanting to explore France. At once both modern and proud of the legacy of its past and radiant.

In Toulouses old town, take a stroll along Rue Croix Baragnon and its adjacent streets. You can wander in and out of numerous local art galleries and in French luxury brand shops. At Place Saint Etienne enjoy one of Toulouses best loved cafes and enjoy a delicious pastry and a refreshing cup of tea. If you come during the afternoon, an antique book fare is held by the little fountain plaza.

Numerous museums, well stocked art galleries, numerous theatres, venues, cinema screens there is no shortage of opportunities to gladden your heart and the cities cultural renown is largely a result of this abundance.

The Festival Occitania returns to Toulouse and its surrounding area. More than 300 artists present 53 cultural events throughout September and October. The event is by no means restricted to local artists, as the roster includes performers from as far away as Greece and the Middle East.

It is also a green city to live in, with many parks, gardens and squares in which to enjoy its warm Mediterranean sunshine. Going for a stroll along the River Garonne, or for a cycle along the Canal du Midi maybe, are great ways to spend an afternoon before tucking into some of the hearty local cuisine.

Today this modern city counts almost 500,000 inhabitants and is driven by its leading industry. It has a big student population and this means it is a youthful, energetic city with a vibrant nightlife.

The south west of France enjoys a temperate climate not too hot in the summer, not to cold in the winter. In other words mild all year, resulting in visiting anytime of year.

Come and see for yourself and enjoy the fun .
