Toulouse may be, although unfairly, not as prominent as other popular French destinations such as Nice, or Paris, but it is certainly an interesting and versatile city. First of all, its unique position between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean makes it a great starting spot for exploring the south of France. Toulouse is abundant in notable heritage sites, basilicas, cathedrals and ancient buildings. It also boasts an exceptional old quarter and a dynamic scene rich with cultural events. The city of Toulouse is also home to the aeronautical centre and a famous space museum. Its nickname "The Pink City" (La Ville Rose) refers to its unique architecture and the predominant colour, which dates back to medieval times, when using pink terracotta bricks was implemented as a frugal measure. With Girona and Bordeaux being only a couple of hours away, a car hire from Toulouse Airport is a convenient way to start your French or even Spanish adventure.
