Optica Imaging Congress


Welcome to Toulouse

Situated in the heart of the southwest, between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, Toulouse (or the "Ville Rose") joyously combines heritage and art de vivre.

Once the capital of the Visigoths and now the capital of the air and space industry, Toulouse invites you to explore its 2,000 years of history. Here, a Roman basilica, there a discrete mansion house with an imposing doorway, further on a converted industrial building, a façade with astonishing terra cotta decor, the murmur of a fountain, a hidden courtyard. Let yourself be guided through quarters that blend history and modernity.

From the River Garonne to the Canal du Midi, from Saint-Sernin to the Cité de l'Espace, on guided visits, the little tourist train, or a boat trip, your stay in Toulouse will be a moment of pure pleasure.
