Toulouse, the capital of the Midi-Pyrénées region of France, is located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, some 366 miles from Paris. It is called the Pink City because of its entirely brick-built houses and monuments. It is the fifth largest metropolitan area in France, with numerous colleges, research institutes and industries. The large student population drives a vibrant art, restaurant, and cultural scene.
Toulouse, near the wine- producing Languedoc region, is adjacent to the Pyrenees. To the west of Toulouse, these mountains form the border of France and Spain, and these Catalonian inhabitants share a common mountain culture and language. The area has spectacular hiking and trekking opportunities in the Parc National des Cevennes and canoeing in the blue water of Gorges du Tarn.
For more urban adventures, the TGV can escort students to the country’s romantic capital city, Paris, where world-class art museums, fashion, tantalizing food options, and architectural wonders await.
