Toulouse Free Walking Tour Itinerary
Immerse yourself in the history, culture and architecture of the French city of Toulouse, exploring its elegant streets and squares with an English-speaking guide. You'll begin your free walking tour in the Place du Président Thomas Wilson, before making your way to the Cathédrale Saint-Étienne de Toulouse, the Toulouse Cathedral. Marvel at its striking mix of architectural styles, including Gothic, Romanesque and Baroque, the result of its many centuries of history and the fact that it was originally two separate churches!
Not far from the Cathedral, you'll reach Toulouse's Fine Arts Museum, the Musée des Augustins. Housed in a former Augustine Monastery, the 14th century Gothic-style building is as much a piece of art as the more than 4000 works on display inside.
Continue your free walking tour to the magnificent Hôtel d'Assézat, a 16th century Renaissance palace that now houses an art gallery, before strolling down to the banks of the Garonne River to take in the views of the famous Pont Neuf, or New Bridge, which - despite its name- is almost 500 years old.
Wandering alongside the river, you'll soon arrive at the enormous Church of the Jacobins, an iconic building whose incredible 13th century vaulted ceiling has been named "The Palm Tree" for its unique design.
Finally, you'll visit the largest Romanesque church in the world, the Saint Sernin Basilica, where your guide will reveal the myths and legends surrounding the building, before your tour comes to an end.
