Toulouse is a vibrant and modern city, which is also steeped in history. Like the rest of the Midi-Pyrenees and neighbouring Languedoc, it’s packed with religious buildings and medieval history, but it also has a modern commercial aspect for shoppers and those who like a more cosmopolitan city. Due to Toulouse’s central location, the airport serves the entire Midi-Pyrenees region as well as many destinations in Languedoc and even the Cote d’Azur; car hire at Toulouse Airport is popular for this reason. Hiring a car in Toulouse is available from the airport and multiple locations across the city centre including Gare de Toulouse-Matabiau.
