On a nice day a pleasant stroll. We decided to walk along the central part of the city river on the day of the marathon! However it seemed to bring the setting more alive. Thundering hoards to one side and the slowly moving river to the other. The old bridge is superb. Information boards along the walk are in French... More

We walked along the Garonne for half an hour or so, watching the traffic on the river (mostly skiffs and rowboats) and enjoying the view. It was a nice sunny afternoon: perfect for a riverside stroll.

There are some lovely paths/walkways near to the river and access to the waterside near the Pont Neuf. Our visit coincided with glorious October sunshine and warm temperatures and we saw the water from a lovely boat ride, including a trip along a little of the Canal du Midi

I took this barge trip as it was included in my Pass Tourism. The bus nr 12 is the nearest stop. Although the trip is just under 90 minutes, it is a very slow moving sail, and only covers a few hundred metres of the LA Garonne and side canal....twice! All audio is given by the captain in French, the... More

Nice place to chill with your Monaco Beer on a Friday night in good company. The reflection of the bridge Pond Neuf in the river is beautiful. You can relax there for hours and enjoy the happiness of the place. You feel secured with the constant presence of policemen. Really nice place to have a pause!

Pont Neuf on the River Garonne is a great place for a few snaps and the surrounding parks and walkways are a great way to relax. Chat out this part of Toulouse you won't be disappointed.

The river is the pulse of the city, with shady places and wider banks where the Romany park their caravans on the way to the Peripherique. Closer inside the city it could do with clearing of floating garbage near the train station

If there's one place in Toulouse to watch the river then it's sitting on the grass or having a drink from the cafe in La Daurade. We enjoyed sitting her at midday and midnight, families friends musicians livers alike were here to enjoy their and the overall company. Read the history of the place when walking down from the road... More

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.
