Your Nice-Toulouse direct flight
Two airlines share the direct route from Nice to Toulouse and they use the same terminal. With easyJet and Volotea, your Nice-Toulouse flight will leave from Terminal 2.
But flying within the country won't get you out of security screenings. Do don’t arrive at Terminal 2 last-minute if you want to get to your gate stress-free! Best to get to the airport 1 hour before departure. Allow an extra quarter of an hour if you need to go to your airline check-in desk to get your boarding pass or check bags.

Arriving in Toulouse
The Toulouse Blagnac Airport is on the outskirts of the City of Roses, just 6 kilometres from the famous Place du Capitole. To get there, you can take:
- The bus: there is a regular shuttle between the airport and Matabiau Station in the centre of Toulouse. It runs from 5:40 am to 12:10 am and takes between 20 and 40 minutes to get to the centre, stopping three times (at Pont du Béarn, Compan-Caffarelli and Jeanne d’Arc) before the terminal. Get on in front of the C2 door, on the Arrivals level.
- The tramway: this will drop you in front of the Palais de Justice, at the entrance to Toulouse city-centre, not far from Place Esquirol. There are connections with the underground and buses.
- A taxi: you’ll find them waiting between doors B3 (Hall B) and C1 (Hall C). You’ll pay a flat rate. This will be between €15 and €45 depending on where you're going. For the city centre, it will be around €25.
- A hire car: six agencies have counters at the airport. This is the best solution if you'd like to visit the region around Toulouse, even though traffic and parking in the city centre can be difficult.
What to do in
Toulouse is above all an atmosphere. It’s filled with its sing-song accent, brick façades that brighten as the sun sets, pedestrian streets and alleyways teeming with people, restless youth, a friendliness found on its bustling terraces even in winter, hearty specialities and crispy chocolate croissants! Toulouse is the embodiment of good living, a thirst for knowledge, a welcoming nature, and so much more that’s sure to win you over.
A city that cultivates good humourSee more See less
European capital of aeronautics and space industries, a respected centre of medical research, life and computer sciences, the City of Violets knows how to get down to work. Except that here they know how to make peace between the ant and the grasshopper, mix effort and comfort, and alternate between work and fun!
Bring your friends along and see for yourself: Toulouse knows how to have a good time! Lead by their infamous rugby players - who prefer the after party to the match - and populated by more than 100,000 students, Occitania goes to bed much later than the sun and knows how to make the most of a weekend.
But that doesn’t mean that only night owls can enjoy a holiday in Toulouse! The city knows how to be angelic and serious as well, making it great for teaching kids - or pitchouns as they're called on the banks of the Garonne - about the world while making sure they have a great time. Starting with the Cité de l'Espace (Space) Museum, you’ll see culture here is alive and well and just the thing to share with your family, for a holiday that lets you set out to discover both the Earth and the stars!
The top 10 things to do in ToulouseSee more See less
- Take the pulse of the city by heading to the Place du Capitole, the most beautiful in Toulouse. It owes its name to the Capitole, its 400 year old city hall. Under its arches you’ll find numerous café terraces, including the oldest: Florida. Over 140 years old!
- Admire the bell tower of the Basilica of Saint-Sernin. See anything odd? It’s last two levels are Gothic, while the first, like the rest of the building, make this church one of the best representations of Roman art in France.
- Go shopping on Rue du Taur and Rue Saint-Rome, the most famous streets in the historical centre. Here, timeless brick and timber-framed houses play host to chic and trendy shops.
- Discover the secrets of the Blue Planet by visiting the Toulouse Museum of Natural History, one of the best in the country. Renovated and modernised in 2007, it has dozens of exhibitions and displays to teach you about our living planet of yesteryear and today.
- Go in search of the cosmos at the Cité de l'Espace Museum. On the program are exact replicas of Ariane 5, the Mir space station and the Apollo module, a high-tech planetarium, and many interactive experiences to share as a family.
- Make your holiday take off by mixing Aéroscopia with Airbus. The first is a renowned aeronautic museum which houses the Concorde, fighter jets, and private planes. The second opens the doors of its factory to show you how the A380 is made.
- Stroll under the shade of the trees along the Canal du Midi, the brain-child of Louis-Paul Riquet. It has connected the City of Roses to the Mediterranean since 1681. While merchant ships are now a distant memory, thousands of tour boats continue to sail along it.
- Pick a side: classic or modern. Classic? Head for Augustins, former convent that is today the Augustins Museum of Fine Arts. Modern? Make for Les Abattoirs, dedicated to Contemporary Art.
- Take a trip to Asia as you wander the Japanese gardens of the Compans-Cafarelli district, or by visiting the Georges Labit Museum, dedicated to civilisations of the Far East for more than a century.
- Stock up on local specialities at the stalls of the Carmes or Victor Hugo markets. The whole of the South-West of France is a food lover’s paradise, and here it’s taken to the extreme - with excellent results. Don’t miss the Nocturne de Victor Hugo every Thursday, when the stalls stay open late.

What is the best time of year to visit Toulouse?
Toulouse plays host to visitors all year long. In spring and autumn, the weather is as warm as the people in the City of Violets. Winters are “frisquets” (chilly!). Even so, the streets, cafés and restaurants around the city are as lively as ever. Student life is also in full swing, and enthusiasm and energy reign over the joyful chaos. Summer on the other hand is hot, very hot, and not always agreeable for a long holiday in the city. Best then to mix things up between city and countryside, Toulouse being the starting point for a lovely trip through Occitania, where you’ll discover Montauban and the Ingres Museum, Albi and its cathedral and Toulouse Lautrec Museum, Foix and its castle, Plaisance du Touch and its sprawling zoo, and finally Carcassonne and its magnificent citadel.
