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

Take your drinks down to La Garonne and enjoy the river, people, good weather and I am sure someone will be playing guitar around. Great place for pic nics and sunsets.

The sound of the small man-made water fall near the EDF Balzac Toulouse is so calming and refreshing. Passing the bridge of Les Catalans every morning is so awakening.

Took tour bus around the city and some wonderful views from it of the Garonne River. Well worth the effort!

Before our visit we were planning on taking a boat trip on the river. We are very glad we didn't as it didn't strike us as being a very scenic river at all. It is just very wide with not a lot on each side except the backs of standard Toulousain buildings. There weren't many opportunities to walk along its... More

The Garonne River wends its way along the banks of the city, inviting leading architects of the 19c to design principal buildings for those sites. Especially enjoyed driving along the river into town from our hotel, la Flanerie.

We got there around noon and it was pretty empty along the garonne, but by 2pm it was packed with people enjoying the sun!

This is a stunning location and beautiful to sit and watch or to walk round up and over it! The bridge has a wonderful design and i believe it withstands the brunt of many floods that have happened over the years
