What is Toulouse famous for?

Toulouse is known as the pink city or la Ville Rose in French. It owes this name to the rosy hue of its terracotta brick buildings. These buildings, made from local clay, glow in the sunset light along the River Garonne. The city boasts a rich architectural heritage, with churches such as the UNESCO listed Basilica of Saint-Sernin, Renaissance mansions and neo-classical facades. It is also a city of Art and History, with many museums and cultural attractions.

As the heart of Europe’s aerospace industry, Toulouse hosts the headquarters of Airbus and other aerospace engineering and research companies in its Aerospace Valley.

Toulouse is also a paradise for food lovers, with regional specialties such as cassoulet, saucisse de Toulouse and tarte aux noir. These dishes reflect the city’s tradition of hearty and delicious cuisine.

Why you should visit Toulouse France

Toulouse has a unique blend of culture, history and geography which makes it a must visit destination in France. It is a very scenic city, set on the Garonne River. The famous Canal du Midi starts in Toulouse, connecting the Garonne River with the Mediterranean Sea. One of our favourite things to do in Toulouse is to go to the banks of the Garonne in the late afternoon and watch the sunlight filter down on the city. Many buildings throughout the city were built using terracotta bricks and this has given the city a pinkish hue. This has earned the city the nickname “La Ville Rose” or The Pink City.

Toulouse is also home to the aviation and aerospace industry in Europe. A popular tourist attraction in the city is Cite de l’espace, which is a spaceflight discovery centre that attracts millions of visitors each year. Other popular destinations in the city include the many historic buildings in the town centre and the expansive gardens dotted throughout the city. To top it all off, Toulouse is known as a foodie destination due to its proximity to some of the best agricultural areas in France.

Basic info about Toulouse France

  • Language – French, although the regional language Occitan is still spoken by a small portion of the population. English is spoken to some extent, particularly in hotels and tourism businesses. However not everyone you meet will be able to speak English. We find that if you at least attempt to speak a bit of French, you will get a warmer reception than if you just assume everyone speaks English. In our experience, most people we’ve spoken to start speaking English as soon as they hear our feeble attempts at speaking French.
  • Currency – euro (EUR). This has been the official currency of France since 2002. Currency exchanges can be found in Toulouse and ATMs are widely available.
  • Population – 46,000 (2015)

Is Toulouse France Safe?

France travel guide: Safety in France

Sunset at Quai de la Daurade Toulouse France

We travelled through France for two months and found the country to be extremely safe. As with any country, there are good areas as well as bad areas. Watch out for pickpockets particularly in Paris, Marseilles, Nice, Lyon, Cannes as well as Strasbourg. Also, make sure no-one is watching whenever you are entering pin codes and never lose sight of your credit card when making a purchase.

General safety considerations in France

Other general safety considerations for travel in France:

  • Drinking water – The tap water is safe to drink in Toulouse.
  • Mosquitoes – the tiger mosquito has been present in France since 2004. This type of mosquito spreads diseases such as Zika, dengue and chikunguya.
  • Road safety – French motorways are the safest in continental Europe. However the National and Departmental roads are much less safe. Additionally, roads are the leading cause of violent death in the country. Consequently, it is important to take care on the roads in France.
  • Water safety – If you visit any of the lakes or waterways near Toulouse take care when swimming as currents and waves may be stronger than you expect.
  • Sun safety – Exposure to the sun can have adverse short-term and long-term effects on the skin, eyes as well as the immune system. Sun protection such as sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses is very important to ensure you don’t get burnt.

As with any destination, take all of your normal safety precautions.
