Toulouse

On the Garonne River, Toulouse is on the site of an ancient Roman settlement, and even today, many of the smaller streets follow their Roman counterparts, while many of the red brick buildings are built in a pseudo-Roman style.
Kids will enjoy Carcassonne Medieval City and Cite de l'Espace. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Toulouse: Carcassonne (Basilica of Saint-Nazaire, Chapelle des Dominicaines, & more) and Albi (Sainte-Cecile Cathedral of Albi & Musee Toulouse-Lautrec). The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilique Saint-Sernin, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and contemplate the long history of Church of Les Jacobins.
