Toulouse sits on the banks of the River Garonne in France's south western region of Haute Garonne, almost equidistant between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. The city was founded as Tolosa, a Roman Military outpost, and is now a thriving modern metropolis home to over 400,000 people, as well as being the capital of the Midi-Pyrenees region. Rent a car from Toulouse Blagnac Airport and explore the city's vivid pink stone architecture, which has resulted in the nickname 'La Ville Rose'. Visit the 11th century Basilique St-Sernin church, which is instantly noted for its spectacular spire. Some of the most spectacular local buildings are the opulent mansions, a reminder of the city's wealthy merchant history, which are dotted around the Old Town.
Toulouse is renowned for its cuisine, and is particularly celebrated for its cassoulet and confit de canard. Pay a visit to the Michelin starred French Brasserie L' Émile, or Le Bon Vivre, a moderately priced bistro for a formal dining experience. For a more rustic approach, take a trip to the vibrant Les Halles Victor Hugo covered market to treat your tastebuds to local dishes, and soak up the animated atmosphere. Hire a car from Toulouse Blagnac Airport and venture into the Midi Pyrénées countryside, where you can make the most of the stunning mountain region for walking and hiking trips. Choose a section of the St James's Way to walk some of the historic pilgrims journey to Santiago de Compostela.
