The river offers wonderful views of local life and stunning views of the sun setting in the west. Great place to sit, relax, and watch the evening pass.

By night the river reflects a riot of colours of the lights along the river, from the niches and the surrounding buildings. By day it soothens the mind and your very being while strolling by it and occasionally enjoy the musicians playing on their guitar and xylophones.

We visited as part of our walking tour of central Toulouse, there is a well renovated path between two of the bridges right along the bank of the river (several steps down fyi). In the sunshine it is simply lovely. People bring food and have picnics etc.

When we were there, it was early evening and with the lights it was pretty and peaceful. A lovely walk along the river admiring the historical buildings either side of the banks heading towards the centre of Toulouse.

Walk or cycle over the old and new bridges, great cycle path along the north bank? (airport side). When we were here, the Garonne's banks were flooded and it was quite a spectacle. But it is always a beautiful aspect of Toulouse's charm and appeal. Boring suburbs on the other side from the old city.

The mighty Garonne seems to amble its way through Toulouse and that is a very good pace to take when you walk along the banks of this river. There is so much to see and so many places to stop and have a snack or drink. There is a real sense that the Garonne is the life blood of Toulouse... More

In the south-west of France, very often the weather is favorite for the nicest walk of Toulouse. Just follow the banks of beautiful Goronne river and discover historical buildings and amazingly sceneries disrupted by ancient bridges like the 500 years old Pont-Neuf. And all that accompanied by thousands of plane trees.

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
