The capital of Occitania welcomes you with open arms, in its red brick setting. Here, 2,000 years of history accompany you, in a whirlwind of culture and heritage. During your visit, you will of course not overlook the must-see monuments of the Pink City: the Capitol, the Saint-Sernin basilica, the Hôtel-Dieu Saint-Jacques, the Jacobins convent, the Augustins museum, The Hôtel d’Assézat … But the Toulouse metropolis is home to many other treasures, with for example the Cité de l’Espace, the flagship of space culture, and its aeronautical pendants, the Aéroscopia museum and the Envol of the Pioneers. Unless you prefer, quite simply, to stroll along the banks of the Garonne, your gaze plunged into the peaceful waves, under the sun.
