Toulouse is Garonne . When you are in Toulouse you must have a walk along the river .It is very nice also to take a bicycle and have a ride around , to sit and have a pik nik .When the weather is good many people do the same.

When we were there, it was pretty and peaceful. It did not seem to command much attention from locals, but perhaps it is more popular in Summer?

A boat along the Garonne river and canal through the classic line of trees was a lovely. At 8 euro, very reasonable for an hour+ ride. Under very low bridges and through past parts of Toulouse, it was a good way to spend a very hot day.

I'm a runner. A Garrone Runner. Both sides of the river banks is lined with a jog/biking path. The fresh breeze, you wont mind at all catching your breath, if not for the pace you try to do catching up with the other avid runners, but with the breath taking sights and feel of running in centuries-old Toulouse!

If you are visiting Toulouse, the Garonne is part of the tour! It can be reached from the narrow street that start in the place de capitole... you can walk by the quay and take a boat, or on the upper part by the street (I like this walk better) Some homeless people hang out around here and there is...

Do not miss the Canal du Midi with the peniche.(vessels which are anchored on the banks of the river or the ones floating along the river) The view is very romantic and probably a unique place in Europe.

I have chance to stroll along the Garonne river in Toulouse and i really enjoy my relaxing time here. Feeling the refreshing breeze from the river, throw your eyes far away with great scene and space of this area. Its worth taking a walk along the bridge of Garonne river.

The Garonne sweeps majestically through Toulouse and adds a touch of calm to a busy city. It is well worth taking a look at it from one of the bridges (probably the Pont Neuf) and then walking along the bank on the far side from the city centre - some great sites to visit there and some lovely views across...

We took a walk along the Garonne from Le Pont Neuf to the EDF Barrage, ok the river looks dirty but the quay area is lovely with river cruises available and walking up to the barrage which can be visited too, At night it throngs with locals and tourists enjoying the evening
