We loved visiting Toulouse because it's a historical city with many interesting places to see. We crossed the Garonne river on the beautiful Pont Neuf and we went to the Jardin des Plantes. With its botanical garden and its ancient vestiges, it was a very pretty walk! Then, we admired the Basilica of Saint-Sernin. But when we saw the magnificent Capitol with its beautiful pink bricks and its eight marble columns, we were speechless! Come with us next time!

I'll be right with you...
