Set off to explore Toulouse over a weekend!
Toulouse, budget-friendly destination, has plenty on offer to suit every occasion with a city break mixing culture, gastronomy, science and sport.
The Ville Rose is convivial, we love to stroll through the markets, linger on the terrace and settle in at table. Whether at a Toulouse wine cellar, a local café, one of the ten Michelin star eateries or in a pub, the city can be explored on a plate. What awaits you? To name just a few specialities: foie gras, cassoulet, Toulouse sausage, french tapas, cheese from the Pyrenees and wines from the South-West, to be found at market stalls or taken to new heights by our chefs.
If visitors can tear themselves away from the local restaurants, food markets and bars, the city has plenty of sporting accolades to explore. The city's rugby team proudly made it through to the Champions League Semi-final earlier this year and has won the Heineken Cup a joint record of four times over the years. A visit to Stade Ernest-Wallon, where the magic happens, is sure to keep every sport fanatic content and is an accessible place to watch UK and Ireland teams during a short break !
Did you know that part of Toulouse unmissable features include Renaissance gems in the city center, three covered markets, visitors circuits to discover the Airbus factory, La Cité de l'espace the only european theme park dediacted to space exploration, the Runway of Giants new cultural site dedicated to the aviation adventure or the N5 Wine bar, best wine bar in the world in 2017 and 2018 ?
As Trevor Brennan, Irish former rugby player will tell you, Toulouse should definitely be on your bucket list!
