Things to see in Toulouse


Toulouse is a medium sized city in the South of France with a nice city center. The river La Garonne splits the city in two parts and also provides a few scenic spots along the waterfront. In the old town there are many sights such as Basilique St. Sernin, museum St. Raymond, the town hall, St. Etienne cathedral, and the palace of sports. This part of Toulouse is also marked by its many small streets which have not seen much change in the last century.

The highlight is the town hall which is nice to see both from the back and the front. There is even a passage though it which highlights the grandeur of this building. In front of the town hall is a large square on which regularly markets and other events are being held. The river la Garonne is a wide river and there are two bridges close to the city center, Pont Neuf and Pont St. Pierre to get you to the other side. The views across the riverfront are quite amazing. On the other side you will also find Hotel Dieu St. Jacques and hotel de la Grave. To get out of Toulouse the city Carcassonne would be the best day trip which can be easily reached by train.
