If I lived in Toulouse I'd enjoy running alongside this canal. It has tree coverage, therefore keeps the sun off you and has a cool, laidback feel. However, as a tourist I didn't find this a particularly interesting attraction, particularly as the riverboat tours pass up and down here with their audio-narration. There are much better things to do and... More

Along side the canal you can bike for miles. Espacially when you can get the bikes for cheap everywere in Toulouse. Great exercise.

Se the intereting way the canal was engineered, quite different from others I have seen. There are quite few canal boats moored at various points along the way, each offeriing interesting food and servces,

Walked along the canal and took a boat trip up to the canal basin in Toulouse - interesting to see the symbols of the masons carved into the stones of the canal locks. It's leafy and shady, which is lovely on a hot Sunday afternoon.

Walk, run and take a deep fresh breath, have a croissant or just sit there enjoying the peacefulness.

It looks great first thing in the morning as the sun rises and the morning mist starts to evaporate - before the boats disrupt the reflections of the trees.

This peaceful (despite proximity to roads) canal and the Canal de Midi, have appeared in so many films/tv shows/postcards that one feels they are like an old friend....well used by cyclists and joggers, it provides a shady passage around the outskirts of the centre.

Walked along the Canal de Brienne from the Pont des Catalans - what a disappointment. Not looked after, 2 dingy restaurant boats. How could the city not look after this better? Walked up to the Canal du Midi.

We took a barge trip form the Quai Daurade through the canal to the Port de l'Embouchure and back. A nice activity for summer.
