Travel With Me // Toulouse & the Real Carcassonne, Toulouse, France (B)

After two days in Arles, France, we hopped back on the train for the three-hour journey to Toulouse, our final stop in France. Toulouse is the only French city we knew we were going to visit for sure when we started planning this trip. My in-laws lived there for a year when they were newly-weds, so we had to go visit and explore this special city for ourselves.

We stayed in Toulouse for three nights. We took a slower pace here, enjoying time wandering the city streets and resting at our Airbnb rather than packing the days with back-to-back activities like most of the rest of the trip. That being said, I don’t have a full three-day itinerary to share here; instead I am sharing the highlights from our time in Toulouse that you should make sure to include in your itinerary along with some additional activities. Most of these recommendations will fit into itineraries of any length.
