Toulouse

Elegantly situated at the confluence of the Canal du Midi and the River Garonne, the vibrant southern city of Toulouse is often known as La Ville Rose, a reference to the distinctive hot-pink stone used to build many of its buildings.

Introducing: Toulouse

Busy, buzzy and bustling with students, this riverside dame has a 2000-year history, but it’s a city with its feet very much in the future: it’s been a hub for the aero-space industry since the 1930s, and is leading France’s drive towards cleaner, greener energies.

Ochre rooftops and blushing brick churches earned Toulouse the nickname ‘La Ville Rose’ (the pink city). Its enchanting Vieux Quartier (Old Quarter) is a dreamy jumble of coral-coloured shopfronts and churches.

It is a city that lives or dies by the fortune of the team, Stade Toulousain (known simply as the reds and blacks), who have won the European Cup a record four times, most recently in 2010. The passion for sport filters through all playing levels, the rugby experience here can be described as passionate, colourful and very competitive. 

At the end of 2016/17 season, Stade Toulousain said farewell to their legendary longtime captain and french international Theirry Dusautoir. Who has sadly hung up his boots after an amazing career for both club and country.
