STADIUM DE TOULOUSE, TOULOUSE
How to get there:
Toulouse Blanca airport is directly linked to the centre with the Tram line 2. Once you’re in
town there are two different metro lines and on matchday, you can use the B metro line to
Saint-Michel Marcel Langer and walk up to the stadium.
Where the rugby’s happening:

Where to get some beers:
Place Saint-Pierre is the hotspot when it comes to having a drink in Toulouse, Chez Tonton is

What to visit whilst I’m there:
The place du Capitole is a beautiful square in the centre of town and is full of nice shops and
bars for you to catch some of the sunny “Ville Rose” or pink city in English. The Canal du
