About Toulouse

Toulouse is a beautiful destination in south-west France that is well worth discovering. The city was one of the birthplaces of modern photography, is a passionate rugby town, and has a lively arts scene – as well as close proximity to some of the finest wineries in the world. On the ground, Toulouse is simply a joy to explore, as you wander around the atmospheric cobbled streets around the Place de la Capitole.

Quick Guide to Toulouse

  • Must know: The major arrival point when travelling to Toulouse is Blagnac Airport, which is around 7 kilometres north-west of the city itself. Airport shuttle buses leave every 20 minutes and take 20 minutes to reach the Place de la Capitole.
  • Must See: The Cité de l'Espace space museum, the fine Romanesque church of St Sernin and the artworks of the Musée des Augustins.
  • Must Do: Be sure to try a cassoulet or Toulouse sausage – and wash it down with a full bodies red wine from the Gaillac region.
  • Did You Know: Toulouse is named 'the pink city' due to the rose-colored bricks used for most of the buildings.

Arriving in Toulouse

Travelling to Toulouse is simple. Upon arrival by plane, take the shuttle bus to the centre of town or buses 25, 30, 66 or 88. It is also possible to travel to Toulouse via high speed TGV. In that case, travellers arrive at Matabiau station, which is on the city Metro network, and is walking distance from city centre hotels.

Traveling around Toulouse

Getting around Toulouse is relatively hassle free due to the combination of Metro, bus and tram services. All of them are covered by Tissio group tickets. Single tickets can be bought on the buses, some of which keep going until 1:00 a.m. In addition, sight-seers can take advantage of a free shuttle bus around the central attractions, which runs Monday to Saturday. Cyclists can also use the VeloToulouse service. If you do rent a bike, be sure to pick up a map of the town’s cycle paths from a tourist office.
