Follow our storyguide to find the top things to do and best places to visit!
Visit the pink city on two wheels
There is nothing better than a bicycle to enjoy the city at your own pace, to ride through its beautiful streets and stroll along the Canal du Midi. Solo in adventure mode, or accompanied for a thematic guided tour, the choice is yours! There is no doubt that you will be seduced by this original approach that allows you, in a few strokes of the pedal, to taste the gentle way of life in Toulouse!
Going off the beaten track
Less known by tourists, the Saint-Cyprien district does not lack assets! Just cross the Garonne by the Pont Saint-Pierre or the Pont Neuf to access some architectural nuggets: the Saint-Joseph de la Grave hospital and its Dome, the Place Saint-Cyprien and its pink brick buildings, the ramparts, the Viguerie harbor and its unobstructed view of the monuments of the right bank..., expect to be amazed!
Take a detour to the Abattoirs
Don't panic, this is not a visit to authentic slaughterhouses, but rather to the museum of contemporary art in Toulouse. Located in the Saint-Cyprien district, the museum is housed in the buildings of the city's former slaughterhouse, hence its name. Labelled "Musée de France", the Abattoirs aims to promote all channels of modern and contemporary art. Note that access to the museum is free with the Tourism Pass.
Attend a rugby match
Attending a rugby match is a must! Dress in red and black to support the famous colossus of the Stade Toulousain and discover the festive atmosphere in the stands. If, due to bad luck, the team does not play during your stay, console yourself by visiting the Ernest-Wallon stadium and admiring the numerous trophies won by the team.
Discover the local gastronomy
Where there is an art of living, there is gastronomy! The capital of Occitania reveals a sunny and tasty cuisine: the unavoidable Toulouse sausage, the Bigorre ham and the foie gras, are as many specialists of the southwest that will delight your taste buds. For dessert, La Fenetra, a cake made with almonds and candied lemons, will delight both young and old gourmets!
