Tour description

A journey through medieval Toulouse! Come and discover for yourself why all attendees value it positively.

The Middle Ages, time of crusades, heresies, passions and miracles.
Join me on a temporary journey through the iconic and essential places of the city of Toulouse .

We will discover how the great pilgrimage routes were born and that led people to travel hundreds of kilometers on dangerous journeys into the unknown, all through the spectacular Saint Sernin basilica.

We will go through the streets where the most famous myths of the city of Toulouse happened.

We will learn about the language of the great troubadours in front of the marvelous façade of the Capitol, the spectacular city hall.

We will immerse ourselves in the roots of the Dominicans, the crusades and heresies through the magnificent convent of the Jacobins.

And this is just the beginning of this impressive 2-hour tour in which I will discover the colors of Toulouse and its secrets, the disasters that almost wiped it off the map, and the strange name of "La Ville Rose" that the city of Toulouse.

A dynamic tour of living history to understand the present of this wonderful city that will end at the Saint Etienne cathedral.

Nos encantó. Fuimos 3 amigas y nos gustó mucho la verdad. El detallazo de poder ponerse en contacto antes de la visita, mandar recomendaciones ya antes, fuimos a varias recomendaciones suyas y todo genial. Trasmite todo de una manera divertida y muy amena. Hace que se pase el tiempo enseguida. La visita a Toulouse mejora con su tour.
