What you'll do

Allow approximately 1 hour and a half for this walk in the heart of Toulouse. This will be the opportunity to discover - between historical facts and unusual anecdotes - the "pink city" in a whole new light. The departure will begin in a shopping street in the city centre and the walk will continue to the district of Esquirol. We will go down Alsace-Lorraine street which, if we take the time to stop there, reveals many secrets. Then we will go through the Place du Capitole, then down to the banks of the Garonne. The stories of the buildings that we will see then are not very known.
Other things to note

I am a native of the region and am lucky to do several activities. Firstly, I am a translator, but I also teach French and English. Outside of work, I spend my time with my family and friends, but I also spend a lot of time planning my next trips. I really like walks and cinema and I often run on the banks of the Garonne. Guided tours are for me a great way to get out of my daily life but also, to make people discover my city and its many secrets.

Great tour! Florie had lots of interesting stories to share about special buildings and people connected to them in history. I really enjoyed the tour and how friendly Florie is - your funny observations brightened a very cold November morning!

Florie has designed a tour that shows what she loves herself about Toulouse. And she transfers this love and spirit over to the people she is sharing her insights and stories with. A wonderful authentic, heartful and interesting experience with a very personal touch. Highly recommended!

This is a great way to get to know Toulouse. Florie was very personable and told great stories with just the right amount of detail. We saw a variety of things, many we never would have known about on our own. The tour almost helped us understand and appreciate Toulouse even more than we already did.

Balade agréable et emmenée par Florie qui sait attirer l attention sur des détails intéressants des monuments devant lesquels on pourrait passer sans regarder

I really enjoyed this tour with Florie. She pointed out interesting things that I had walked right past without noticing in the previous few days. It wasn’t a tour just filled with boring facts of when a building was built, but instead included stories of the people and life in the city in those time periods. She is very personable and a great story teller. Highly recommended!

Guide très agréable, qui nous a fait découvrir des facettes intéressantes et méconnues de Toulouse, avec bienveillance et bonne humeur. Balade originale, Florie est toujours prête à répondre aux questions, échanges intéressants.
