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.
Start off your visit on the 5th (Mon): engage your brain at Cite de l'espace, then test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilique Saint-Sernin. Keep things going the next day: take in nature's colorful creations at Jardin Japonais, steep yourself in history at Church of Les Jacobins, and then don't miss a visit to Le Capitole.
