The thousand and one splendours of the Pink City unfold during a sunny walk. Place du Capitole remains and will always be a must to admire during a weekend in Toulouse. Its neo-classical style, its arcades and of course the unique color of its stone, the beating heart of the metropolis is a painting all by itself. Not far from your Kyriad hotel room in Toulouse, you will succumb to the charm of the Carmelite district, one of the oldest in the city, which has retained its identity with its half-timbered houses and narrow streets. The effervescence of the banks of the Garonne is not a myth. Between the Saint-Pierre bridge and the Pont-Neuf, the evening is festive. When it's time for an aperitif, students and residents get used to meeting in the many terraces of the tapas bars. Extend your stay in Toulouse with a visit to Tarbes, a green getaway on the way to the peaks of the Pyrenees!
You can explore the city of Toulouse and its region in one week. On the first day, go to place du Capitole. Visit the town hall, have a drink on one of the terraces, wander through the streets. Do not miss rue Saint-Rome and the basilique Saint-Sernin. Next day, admire the law school, one of the oldest in France, and take a glass at place Saint-Pierre in the evening, a place much acclaimed by students. Third day, discover Toulouse over the water. Travel the Garonne on a barge and the banks of the canal du Midi on a bike. On the fourth day, visit the city's museums. For fine arts, head to the Musée des Augustins, for contemporary art, make your way to the Musée des Abattoirs, for natural science. The next two days will be spent visiting the aeronautical sites of the pink city. You will have fun and enrich your knowledge with the cité de l’Espace and the Airbus site. At the end of your stay, get out of the city. Less than an hour away, you will find beautiful walks in the Lauragais where two cities classified as UNESCO World Heritage sites are waiting to be discovered: Carcassonne and Albi. You will find Kyriad hotels if you wish to spend a night there.
Toulouse will bring families together around one of its main attractions: the cité de l’Espace. Also, think about visiting the natural history museum that adjoins the Jardin des plantes, a bike ride along the Canal du Midi and a boat trip on the Garonne. These original outings will please both young and old.
