Things to do in Toulouse
The soft rose-coloured bricks that give Toulouse its nickname,
''The Pink City'', belong to beautiful historic buildings that make
up the town centre. The Capitole building is the star attraction,
with both municipal offices and the ThÃ©Ã¢tre National du Capitole
housed within; while the 11-century St Sernin Basilica is among the
largest in the world. Other beautiful buildings worth visiting
include the HÃ´tel d''AssÃ©zat, the MusÃ©e des Augustins, and Les
Jacobins Monastery, which houses relics of Thomas Aquinas.
Toulouse''s attractions are not limited to the historical,
however, as the Cite De L''espace theme park celebrates the city''s
large aerospace industry with flight-themed interactive exhibits
and a huge planetarium.
Boat trips are a great way to relax and take in the sights of
Toulouse, and are conducted along the Garonne River. Pretty parks
like the Japanese gardens also offer places to sit and relax or run
around and play in, depending on your age and energy levels.
