The "Ville Rose"

Toulouse, surprising & welcoming

A city of heritage and a land of adventure

Exhibitions, concerts, festivals… the Ville Rose is always brimming with events! And for the foodies, there’s always a new restaurant to discover.

Take the time to stroll through the narrow streets and squares of the city centre to soak up the friendly atmosphere of this southern city, and watch the terrace cafés come alive at all hours of the day. From the banks of the Garonne to historic monuments, from the Cité de I’Espace to Airbus, Toulouse has surprises in store for you.

My day in Toulouse...

to the rhythm of the Ville Rose

Starting the day with a chocolatine and a coffee at a terrace café, then marvelling at the works on show at an exhibition, strolling through the streets and meandering along the banks of the Garonne: visiting Toulouse also means taking the time to enjoy every moment.
