Walk along the river up north and you will arrive at a rustic cafe after about an hour or so. It is a nice long walk in nature, but the cafe and sitting there at sunset are worth the long walk.

The view of the river is nice but the water is terrible, it smells bad. On the riverside you can walk and rest under the trees

To think the builders of this bridge had the foresight to not only address the base/foundation but also include the holes at the mid-points up the bridge to alleviate the stress of the flowing waters/floods is amazing. No wonder this bridge is still in place - and more compelling is traffic continues to use it for transportation. The question has... More

The Garonne River adds a positive dimension to the city of Toulouse as an attractive place to enjoy the river view or the banks for strolling, reading, sun bathing or people watching. On a nice day, or even a not so nice one, it is a great place to escape some of the rush of the city.

The Garonne River flows from the Pyrenees to the Atlantic at the Gironde estuary north of Bordeaux. With the Canal du Midi, it links the Mediterranean to the Atlantic. It is still used for transport. It is fun to see Airbus fuselages, too wide for highways, being floated down the River.

The river is just that crossed by the historic Pont neuf ("new bridge" which is actually the oldest crossing). Nice to walk beside, especially if you follow some of the canals which go off from it.
