A romantic Valentine’sweekend in Toulouse

Toulouse, the Ville Rose, is the ideal destination to discover on Saint Valentine’s Day. Imagine a romantic escape combining heritage, strolls through historic narrow streets, sunsets across the River Garonne and an intimate dinner for two at a gourmet restaurant.

My romantic getaway

A romantic dinner is a must on Friday 14th February, that most famous soiree that demands candlelight, soft music, rose petals and all the trimmings. Or maybe not! Whatever you choose to do, never scrimp on the quality of your romantic meal: thanks to our eateries, you can’t put a foot wrong.

Cosy and honest, beautiful, refined and surprising

On the programme for my weekend

The day starts with a "chocolatine" on a terrace in one of the city's squares, then head to the tourist office to pick up a tourist pass that includes a tour with a guide. The Capitol, the Saint-Sernin basilica, the Jacobins... Toulouse and its monuments will no longer hold any secrets for you! If you really want to play the romance card, book a guide just for the two of you with the « Visite V.I.P » package. After lunch in one of the city centre restaurants, head to Toulouse's parks and gardens for a bucolic digestive walk. Between the Japanese garden and its magnificent red bridge or the charm of the Jardin Royal and its pond in the heart of the city, love is in the air. The afternoon continues between exhibitions at the museum and shopping... Close to the Rue d’Alsace-Lorraine you can find all the big prêt-à-porter brands, head towards the Place de la Bourse for quirkier boutiques or even take in the chic Saint-Étienne quarter.

The L.O.V.E. moment of the weekend: a "tête à tête" around a cocktail. If Toulouse knows how to delight your taste buds with quality restaurants, it also knows how to tickle them with unusual cocktail bars to discover!

After a gentle wake-up call, stroll between the stalls of one of the city's markets to meet local producers and specialities from the South West. At noon, hand in hand and head in the clouds, enjoy a lovers’ stroll along the quayside that flanks the River GaronneTake in the panorama across the Ville Rose from the Viguerie Walkway, which gives you the feeling of walking on water, remembering to take a selfie with the dome of Saint-Joseph-de-la-Grave chapel in the background.
To surprise your partner and take off into the seventh heaven, visit the Cité de l'espace, the Envol des pionniers or Aeroscopia as a couple!
