A wonderful place to stroll and soak up the atmosphere. Plenty of shade and seats to rest and enjoy the view

Toulouse is a city beautiful and pleasant, with several areas that are worth a visit. But, without doubt, the Quai de la Garonne is one of the two "must" of the city: at every time of the day there's a space on the banks of the river which deserves to be visited (the other "must" is Capitol). / Toulouse és...

Experience any good sunset from the town side of Pont Neuf and from Pont St-Pierre. The latter takes you down to the museum "Les Abattoirs".

Toulouse offers bike sharing, so take a bike ride along the river. We went north to Blagnac and visited a big and beautiful parc on the west side of the Garonne river (Parc des Ramiers). Garonne and the Canal du Midi are real arteries of Toulouse.

With a city like Toulouse as a backdrop, who needs a larger river? The Garonne is beautiful in its own right but it is the harmony with the city that makes it shine.

Wide open banks and soaring walls against which are grassy areas, wide paths and many steps up to the bridges. I heard that in summer sand was used to make beaches along sections. The broad river sweeps through the city and by its side are public gardens and plenty of trees. This really enhances the view and the experience of... More

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!
