Toulouse Travel Guide

by our France expert Conrad Freethy
 
Conrad FreethyA 13th century, still-flourishing, major university gives Toulouse a slightly raffish, bohemian feel. The headquarters of one of Europe’s key aero-space industries (flight of the Concorde and now home of AirBus) gives it a hi-tech dimension. Steeped in Crusader history and the former capital of the Languedoc region, the Ville Rose (rose-red city, for its characteristic brickwork) sits between Atlantic and Mediterranean France as well as being the gateway to the Pyrenees. Gastronomically, cassoulet simply could not have been invented without the Toulouse sausage and with Burgundy in one direction and Bordeaux in the other, yet again the only problem is choice.
