  • 23 km
  • famille Level Family

You can sense the outskirts of the huge regional metropolis of Toulouse long before reaching the centre of ‘the pink city’, as it’s nicknamed. Sticking to the Canal de Garonne, its historic tranquillity contrasts with the rampant urbanisation beyond. You enter Toulouse at the junction of the Canal de Garonne, the Canal de Brienne and the Canal du Midi, at the level of Les Pont-Jumeaux. Then a cycle track beside the Canal du Midi takes you into the city centre.

Toulouse, nicknamed The Pink City

Nicknamed ‘The Pink City’, due to the colour of the predominant bricks, Toulouse has a marked southern European feel and charm.
