How to Find the Best Toulouse Hotels with Venere

Toulouse is a city in the south of France and is the capital of the Haute-Garonne department.

Nicknamed 'La Ville Rose' (the Pink City), Toulouse is a vibrant destination that is often overlooked by tourists, yet, spend an afternoon in the city and you will quickly appreciate the cultural scene as well as the Old Town with its historic architecture and hôtels particuliers (private mansions). Finding your ideal hotel in Toulouse can feel like an impossible task, particularly when there are hundreds of hotels to choose from. With the help of Venere you can find the hotel best suited to your budget and expectations with the aid of user submitted reviews, hotel room and facilities photo galleries, and our handy interactive map.

What's Toulouse Like?

Toulouse offers all of the sights and sounds of a memorable experience, but without the hustle and bustle of most tourist destinations. One of the most striking landmarks within the city is the Church of Les Jacobins, a towering 13th-century structure brimming with stained glass windows and spacious interiors. History and culture buffs will enjoy museums such as the Musée des Augustins (Museum of Augustin) fine arts museum, the Museum of Toulouse and its expansive gardens, and the ultra modern Cite de l'Espace (City of Space) science museum. Like any French city, there are plenty of shopping opportunities including flea markets, dozens of shopping streets, and the Galeries Lafayette shopping mall.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Toulouse

Toulouse enjoys a temperate climate with pleasantly warm summers and chilly winters. From June to August the summer temperatures reach an afternoon average of 82° Fahrenheit, although on occasion heatwaves can see this temperature rise as high as 105° Fahrenheit. The city is often overlooked by tourists in favor of nearby cities such as Marseille and Montepellier, so you can immerse yourself in a somewhat authentic French cultural experience. Although many of the locals will speak English, try not to expect too much of them, and instead memorize a few simple phrases such as "Parlez-vous anglais?" (Do you speak English). The main railway station of Toulouse-Matabiau provides services to Foix, Auch, and Carcassonne. When in the city, try out some of the local cuisine such as Saucisse de Toulouse, a peppery wood-fired sausage, or Cassoulet, a type of duck stew.
