What to See in Toulouse

Toulouse is a small city, and you can reach most interesting places in the downtown area comfortably on foot.

  • Basilique Saint Sernin - a church from the 11th Century
  • Hôtel d'Assézat - one of the most appealing of the many old mansions of the city
  • Capitole - the imposing and palatial townhall and theatre, its beautiful facade facing onto the grand Place du Capitole
  • Pont-Neuf - despite its name the only old bridge across the Garonne river; built between 1544 and 1626
  • Les Jacobins monastery church, contains Thomas Aquinas' relics.
  • City park at the Grand Rond, a bit south-east to the center of the city
  • Les Augustins Used to be a monastery church, and is today an art museum
  • Les Abattoirs Modern Arts museum, and there is also a nice garden with a nice view on the Garonne

Tours

The tourism information office located in the back side of the Capitolium organizes guided tours of the city. Some of these are in English. Check ahead for their schedule.

Airbus

Airbus offers tours of their facilities; the tour takes about 30 minutes and includes a guide who will tell you some background about the company; the screening of a promotional / historical video, and a look at the construction hangars. However you will not get to see the new Airbus A380 (as of November 2004). Photography is strictly forbidden, and you need to bring a piece of photo identification. Book ahead.

Cite de l'Espace

The "space city" is another of Toulouse's "aviation" attractions. However you must be aware that it is not exactly a museum but a sort of scientific theme park without rides. There are some replicas of spacecraft and other exhibits, many of the later interactive in some minor way. There's also a small planetarium. The park is suited well to 5-14 year old children, everybody else should probably spare themselves the trip. It's situated fairly outside the city but there's a bus service starting outside the main train station.

By Public Transport (Bus):

Take bus route no. 37 from the Marengo metro station going to La Plaine. Ask for the Cité de l'espace bus stop.
