Toulouse City Guide

I went to Toulouse on a whim. I’d had a few very long months at work and just wanted to get away to somewhere that wouldn’t be too stressful, that would be pretty, and that wouldn’t cost me too much (at the time I was saving up for Iceland). La Ville Rose, as Toulouse is tenderly nicknamed, ticked absolutely every box.

To see & do:

A trip to Toulouse can be as packed as you want it to be. There’s plenty to see & do, but you can also just wander its cute little streets and stop at cafés whenever the mood strikes (and the belly rumbles).

Couvent des Jacobins

Les Abattoirs

Musée des Augustins

Terrace of Galeries Lafayette – Ma Biche sur Le Toit

Hôtel d’Assézat – Fondation Bemberg

Cathédrale Saint-Étienne de Toulouse

Basilique Saint-Sernin de Toulouse

Musée Saint-Raymond

To eat:

I had no shortage of vegetarian-friendly places to eat in Toulouse — and had some left in my to-visit list by the end of my trip. I’m a huge fan of brunch and apparently so is La Ville Rose! There are plenty of places at which to stop and have a coffee-and-pastry break, and I had some Argentinian empanadas that I still dream of with embarrassing frequency ❤

L’Autre Salon de Thé

La Fiancée

Ô, Thé Divin




To shop:

Cute little establishments seem the rule in Toulouse, and shops were not left far behind. Here’s a list of a few that I visited and I still wish I had nearby.

    1. Hello Stephanie and Jerome! Thank you so much for such a kind comment ❤ Your blog seems lovely as well – I've never visited Strasbourg, but it's been on my list ever since I learned about the Strasbourg Cathedral when getting my art history degree, so I am definitely following you back!
