Wonderful medieval town center. Toulouse is known as the pink city thanks to the color of the brick walls of much of its historic center as the sun sets. Toulouse has several beautiful Romanesque churches, and is a fun city to go an explore. Toulouse is also home to Airbus, which gives it an unique blend of the old and new.

La Ville Rose, the historic and cultural capital of southern France and Occitania, is a beautiful city full of history and warm-hearted people. It seems the closer you get to the Mediterranean, the warmer the people- and so it is here.
I was studying French, Spanish and Arabic when I lived here and found this city a perfect confluence of the three cultures, plus a vibrant Occitanian culture you don't want to miss out on!

The fourth-largest city in France and capital of the Midi-Pyrénées region is a criminally overlooked destination when it comes to international tourism. It is a rich city that has found a way to preserve its medieval past, the center of the European aerospace industry (Airbus HQ is here), a hub of culture, a young and vibrant university town, home to the very distinctive Sud-Ouest cuisine, the gateway to the Pyrénées mountains as well as the sandy dunes of the French Basque region on the Atlantic and the windsurfing hotbeds of the Languedoc-Roussillon on the Mediterranean, due to its central location in southwestern France. Its immediate area is dotted with mountain gorges and charming, medieval towns like Castres and Carcassone. Perhaps not a must-stop on your first visit to France, but if you've already done the essential France and are looking for a more out of the ordinary destination, I can hardly think of a better place to spend a holiday than 'dans La Ville Rose' - in the Pink City of Toulouse.

Toulouse holds the spirit of the middle ages with its two Romanesque churches. The Basilica of St. Sernin one of the largest Romanesque churches in Europe. Another one is Cathédrale Saint-Étienne. I didn't stay long enough to explore Toulouse but the churches are fabulous.
