Toulouse is France's fourth largest city after Paris, Marseille and Lyon.
We went there for the day, and here are just a few of the things we saw.
Taking a break on the banks of the Garonne which flows to Bordeaux and into the Atlantic.
Looking into a conveniently placed mirror to see the palm arch detail in the Church of the Jacobins.
Saint-Sernin, the largest romanesque basilica in Europe, built to serve the pilgrims on the Road to Compostella.
A coffee break looking out on the rooftops of Toulouse at Galeries Lafayette.
