Even if the title sums up everything, I just want to underline that Garonne's sides are just fine for a lot of plans: lovers, friends and family, for a pleasant picnic or a morning footing. Please, just respect others and think it could be you, the next person walking by: throw away your rubish to keep this place clean. Same... More

Awesome river and bridge. There's also a great theater next to it where you can watch high quality performances and have a glass of wine next to the river.

If you wander on the banks of the river, you will see how Toulouse is beautiful at the evening, with all its lights. You should know, that you will find the same river in Bordeaux as well, it is there a little bit larger.

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
