Toulouse Travel Guide

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 Théâtre 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 Hôtel d''Assézat, the Musée 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.
