Toulouse: the pink city of a thousand flavours

Between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, the heart of the South-west beats in Toulouse.

A perfect combination of lifestyle and history, surrounded by magnificent scenery, Toulouse is genuinely charming with its southern ‘midi' accent. The former capital of the Languedoc, today the pearl of the Midi-Pyrénées, Toulouse has shone in France for a very long time. The voice of history still rings out on every street corner: the ‘pink city', thus named because of the colour of the specific clay brick of the region, displays the struggles of history and time.
The golden age of the city, between the 12th and 15th centuries, gave it its finest convents, like the Cordeliers and the Jacobins. Lovers of art and architecture will enjoy strolling around Capitol Square, built according to the classical canons of the 17th century, and through the streets of this city of shimmering colours.
The character of Toulouse also comes from its emblems, which have made it famous throughout France. Its rugby team, Stade Toulousain, has conquered the world of rugby, and its gastronomy is distinctively rich in flavours. For Epicureans, Toulousain cassoulet remains a highlight of every holiday. In addition, its vineyards produce some of the best under-rated treasures of France.
From the Garonne to the Mediterranean, the Canal du Midi offers the charms, surprises and leisurely pace of the inland waterways. Between gastronomic delights, historical strolls, and excursions to the surrounding countryside, enjoying the good life in Toulouse is assured.
