Toulouse, located in the south-west of France, is the capital of the Haute-Garonne department.
It is called the Pink City because of the colour of its architecture. The sites not to be missed when visiting the city include Capitole Square, St. Sernin Basilica and the Cloister of the Jacobins Convent. And while you’re here, visit Airbus, the flagship of the Toulouse economy.
Toulouse is a dynamic university city which is also a sports city, with its football team, the Téfécé and its rugby team, the Stade Toulousain.
