About Toulouse

Toulouse, also named La Ville Rose – the “Pink City” – due to its red-brick buildings that seem to subtly change colour throughout the day, is one of France’s most exciting provincial cities. Once a city that inspired the medieval poets of courtly love, Toulouse has become a pioneer in technology and aerospace development.

Toulouse holds on to a resolutely old-fashioned French soul, with its markets, regional cuisine and cafés interspersed between second-hand bookstalls and antique shops. This 2,000-year-old historical city shows off its brick and tile architecture, typical of the cities, villages and farms of the Midi-Pyrenees region.

But with a growing and buzzing student population, the city is certainly not stuck in a time warp. With an abundance of bars, cafés, trendy shops and nightclubs, Toulouse offers a truly cosmopolitan experience.
