Toulouse is a vigorous and growing commercial city (metropolitan pop.>1.1M) and is the fifth largest such area in France. It is the capital of the Midi and is its communication center. With its restaurants, hotels and ambience, it is an ideal place from which to start a tour of the area. We flew there, saw its sights and rented a car. It has much to recommend it: the townscape, the ambience, the culture and its churches (this locale was the cradle of Romanesque sculpture, where European Art began). Several VT members (including us) have written extensively about Toulouse, It will take at least two days to see much and more if you are into Aerospace.
