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 Capitole, a square in the heart of the city named after the pink-brick Neoclassical Capitol building: home to the City Hall and the Toulouse Opera House. Learn all about its history - which dates back to the 12th century - as you admire its stunning façade.

You'll then make 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.

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!
