Toulouse is a city located in the southwest of France in the Midi-Pyrénées region. For many centuries, the city experienced a series of ups and downs but it was during the 19th century that the city experienced a major event when the French Revolution took place. April 10, 1814 became a time to remember when the city had its last war with Napoleon’s empire.

The Le Capitole, or the City Hall, is found at the center of Toulouse and it houses the Théâtre Nationale du Capitole. If you want to get a feel of how Roman gladiators battled, drop by the Roman Amphitheatre of Toulouse-Purpan.

Toulouse Blagnac Airport is served by airlines from across Europe and North Africa. For Eurail pass holders Toulouse has direct trains operating to most parts of France.

The main railway station in Toulouse is Toulouse-Matabiau and the station is on the Bordeaux-Sète railway, Toulouse-Auch railway, Toulouse-Bayonne railway and Brive-Toulouse (via Capendac) railway.
