“Nice river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

I've spent my days reading and sitting in the parks and river bank. This river is quiet re. "traffic" but does have 2 boating trips along it, there also seems to be wake boarding (or rubber ring behind a motorboat) adn coneing. Not sure where these things start from - maybe near the pool they come from that direction. Not a river for swiming.

“High water but a beautiful place to walk and gaze”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

The Garonne was high due to recent heavy rainful. As a result, the scene was atypical. Far fewer ships were crusing on the Garonne. Still, it's a magnificent place for walks any time of day. You can walk on paths right along the river or up higher along streets that parallel the river. You can walk across any of several bridges to explore other parts of the city. Pont Neuf is the most beautiful of the bridges, especially at night. On a weekend evening, come for a sunset picnic along the river in summer.

“Historic Garonne rolls through the heart of Toulouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Walking through the narrow medieval streets of Toulouse you suddenly come to the banks of this historic river and think of the ancient Greeks, the Romans, the builders of the city, the invaders from northern France during the battles of their crusade against the Cathars. You take pleasure in the open vistas, the beautiful bridges, the views, the rows of plane trees along the shore. A place to unwind.
