A little Tour of Toulouse

You can also swing by Toulouse to take advantage of the countless entertainments centred on the Tour de France, as well as the city’s summer events.

From 10th July you can hit the heights and admire exceptional views across the city when you ride on the Big Wheel at Quai Viguerie, on the banks of the Garonne.

The fireworks to mark the 14th July, set off from barges on the River Garonne, always provide a magical moment. And to help you kill time until nightfall, free concerts take place at the Prairie des Filtres courtesy of an exceptional array of artists.

On Wednesday 17th July, Victor Hugo Market celebrates the Tour with a gourmet late night opening from 6:30pm until 10:30pm. Bands, tapas and wine tastings…a 100% South-West ambiance is guaranteed!

On 17th July you can visit the Cité de l’Espace until 9pm with a special rate of €5 for entry after 6pm (free for children under 5 years). And on Thursday 18th, take part in the Nocturne de la Cité event until 11pm, featuring entertainments and fireworks at the foot of the Ariane Rocket.

On 19th and 20th July, come and meet the Minotaur at the Hall of La Machine during their late-night summer opening that runs until 10pm and enjoy the concert. You can spend an exceptional evening on the Runway of Giants alongside all the Veritable Machinists.
