La Ville Rose (Pink City)

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.

Get out of town with these interesting Toulouse side-trips: Albi (Cathedrale Sainte-Cecile & Musee Toulouse-Lautrec) and Carcassonne Center (Eglise Saint-Nazaire, Chapelle des Dominicaines, &more). Fill the 12th (Tue) with science at Cite de l'espace. There's more to do: test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms and take in the spiritual surroundings of Church of Les Jacobins.
