Garonne, Toulouse

4.2
#2 of 6 in Parks in Toulouse
Garonne is one of the few rivers in the world that has a tidal bore. This makes it a perfect spot for jet skiing and surfing because you can ride the waves as far as 120 km (75 mi) from the Atlantic Ocean. For a fun sightseeing excursion, watch as the lateral canal takes ships through 53 locks to Toulouse, where the canal meets Canal du Midi, the next stage of the Canal des Deux Mers. For a tour of Toulouse from the water's edge, book a cruise along the river, steering through Saint Pierre's Lock, the Canal de la Brienne, then the three tributaries of Ponts Jumeaux. Put Garonne into our Toulouse travel itinerary maker to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Toulouse.

    You can see that the river bank is well-kept in Toulouse. It's a quite nice and pleasant walk. The River goes a boat making a visit but I can not say because I did not use it. Bridges are beautiful and there are buildings beside the river which are steeped in history. I was surprised one of the banks with lawns, hammocks, umbrellas and many people.

    Hello, what beautiful River, even without a lot of water, just stroll on the banks of the sea bream, visit the hydroelectric plant of the (free) Bazacle or mingle electrical engineering and exhibitions, just walk to the sunset on deck nine, calm and pleasure are waiting.

Where to stay in Toulouse

Staying in the Saint Cyprien district on the west side of the Garonne River is a fabulous way to enjoy Toulouse. Consider a stay in one of the district’s historic hotels. Alternatively, you can take full advantage of the city’s nightlife with a stay in the Arnaud Bernard district, where bars and cafes line the streets.
