Oh-so-beautiful Old Quarter

Dreamy doesn’t even cover it. Get lost among Toulouse’s Old Quarter, where cobbled streets are lined with ancient palaces, handsome mansions and centuries-old churches. Romanesque Basilique St-Sernin is a must-see, along with bustling Place du Capitole and grand Couvent des Jacobins.

Atmospheric after dark

There’s a Spanish-style atmosphere to Toulouse. Live music spills out of bouncing bars, ranging from jazz to rock, and wine bars are a magnet for the chic crowd. When the sun is shining, the banks of the river Garonne are the place to be for drinks by the water, so put Place Saint-Pierre on your radar.

Gastronomic goodies

Toulouse is a foodie treasure trove. Squares, cellars, courtyards and canalside terraces are teeming with bistros, brasseries and cafés. Look out for local dishes like cassoulet, a nourishing sausage and bean stew, and confit de canard, preserved duck. Lively food markets are popular too – Marché Victor Hugo is a fave.
