Toulouse and how to get there

Welcome to Toulouse, capital of Occitania.

Toulouse is a city of colour, with its façades of pink brick, its emblematic flower the violet, the blue of the pastel…it is the ideal destination for your holidays or weekend breaks filled with walks and visits. Situated in the heart of the South-West, between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, the “Ville Rose” joyously combines heritage and art de vivre.

From the River Garonne to the Canal du Midi, from Saint-Sernin to the Cité de l’Espace, on guided visits, the little tourist train or a boat trip, your stay in Toulouse will be a moment of pure pleasure.
