When it comes to cities in France, there are many that stand out including Paris, Bordeaux, Nice, Marseille and Lyon. In the southwestern part of the country there is a city often overlooked. This city is Toulouse, a vibrant destination named as La Ville Rose for its distinctive brick red walls and pink stones showcased from different buildings and homes in and around the city. Today we focus our sights on Toulouse, a cosmopolitan melting-pot that is packed with art, culture, industry and architecture and the best French cuisine consisting of the most delectable sausages (Saucisse de Toulouse) and mouth-watering Foie Gras that is a real pride for each and every Toulousain.
The city center of Toulouse, compared to Paris, is small and walkable but this does not mean that there are a few sights and activities to do in such a small area as each corner and street is filled with charming stores, restaurants and covered markets that make you feel that you really are in an authentic French city sans the usual tourists that invade the bigger cities of Bordeaux and Lyon. It is like what a lot of people say, a smaller version of Paris, with cheaper prices and friendlier people that never ceases to amaze all who have the chance to visit the city and see smiles all around. The weather also counts as one of Toulouse’s best draws as it has a relatively warmer climate than Paris in fall and winter.
