"Pink at dawn, mauve in the sun and red at dusk..." - the city of Toulouse happily combines a harmonious mix of styles and colours. This old capital of Occitania and the "capitouls", which became prosperous thanks to the woad industry, is now resolutely turned to the future, with its renowned aviation factories and busy university. After exploring the city's architectural gems hidden in the old town and its fascinating museums, don't forget to sample some of the specialities which make this city a paradise for food-lovers.
