A powerhouse of the south, France’s fourth largest city is a dynamic place that overlays its rich history with a thoroughly modern outlook. The heart of the historical Occitania region (street signs are in both French and Occitan), it’s packed with centuries-old red brick mansions that glow in the southern French sunlight, giving it the nickname ‘the pink city’. A young, diverse population fills bars and restaurants that are as likely to serve tapas as Toulouse sausage, a reminder of this area’s proximity to the Spanish border. Beyond the beautiful historic centre, the city also looks firmly to the future as a thriving hub for the aeronautics industry.
