Guide to Toulouse
Even back in the Iron Age, the Garonne Valley was a major hub for trading between the Atlantic, Mediterranean and Pyrenees and it was a Roman garrison by the 2nd Century BC. It then became the capital of Aquitaine in the 6th Century and enjoyed a period as a semi-autonomous city state in the subsequent centuries, before formally becoming part of France in the 1229 Treaty of Paris. Modern Toulouse is a cultural hotspot, with attractions like ballet, a renowned orchestra and many galleries and museums.
