Toulouse, capital of the Midi-Pyrénées region and the fourth largest city in France, is known as the “Pink City” due to the red/pink bricks that feature in many of its buildings. It’s also known for being a city rich in history as well as a major business and technology center, home to French aerospace giant Airbus and several other top technology companies. When you’re not studying or working, you’ve got easy access to the ocean and mountains, a wonderful year-round climate, a vibrant art and music scene, quaint neighborhoods, and wonderful café-lined squares.
