‘Key Sights’ of Toulouse Walk
The walk encompasses the history and stories about the most famous of Toulouse’s landmarks. During the walk we will pause, wonder & enjoy: the immense Place Capitôle & Toulouse’s stunning town hall; Basilique St-Sernin – a key stop on the pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostela; a stroll along the scenic Garonne; private town houses built during Toulouse’s “Golden Age”; and some good local stories and inside knowledge without which any walk would not be complete!
Ideal as a first initiation to Toulouse. The walk takes approximately 2 hours, is just over 3 km & light refreshments are provided at half-time.
Beyond the Postcard
Going beyond the principal sights of the city that you would usually find on a picture postcard this walk is a true journey of discovery around the Eastern part of old Toulouse.
Building on knowledge gained during our Key Sights of Toulouse walk, highlights include: the ever popular Place St-Georges with its cafés aplenty, the world famous Musée des Augustins, the strikingly unorthodox Cathedral St-Etienne & the ‘chic village’ atmosphere of Place St-Etienne.
This journey of discovery is approximately 2km long & takes 2 hours.
