5 Places Locals Love in Toulouse, not the usual tourist attractions!
1. La Face B
Toulouse is all about cakes. Here there are a gazillion tea places to try delicious beverages and cakes. La Face B is outstanding because they offer an amazing number of different classic cakes tweaked up with super original ingredients (Saint Honoré, cheesecakes, banoffee …) and use super quality products to make them!
One of the most beautiful views on Toulouse’s riverbanks. It’s a small bridge right above the river which leads you to the best view of the pink bricks, the bridges and everything that makes Toulouse so beautiful.
The canal circles Toulouse and it is surrounded by magnificient trees that used to offer shade for the horses that pulled the boats centuries ago. Today it provides you with great shade to read under, picnic, or even just stare at the beautiful ducks that live there.
This is a hidden gem, only known by students who love to picnic during their lunch break. It used to be part of a religious building nearby and today it offers a gorgeous setting for anyone who likes hanging out outdoors.
Toulouse’s Dungeon is both mysterious and useful. There you’ll find the tourism office and a bunch of super practical information. You’ll also be standing in front of one of the most beautiful building here. Urban legend says that a secret underground corridor could lead you from there to Saint Sernin Basilica.
