DAY 1 Plan your arrival for the afternoon. It’s the perfect time to take in the beauty of the landscape and the sunset. Bike along the famed Canal du Midi to open up your senses and soak up the French lifestyle all around you. After your bike ride and a brief rest, enjoy the gastronomy of the city. One of the most breathtaking restaurants is Le Bibent. The solemnity of its architecture will amaze you upon entering the main dining area. The walls and the ceilings, down to the cutlery and crockery, create a majestic dining atmosphere. During the last 160 years, Le Bibent has developed exquisite French cuisine. Select from a range of culinary creations such as Eggs Mimosa, foie gras de canard, cassoulet Montalbanais and delicious desserts such as mille-feuille with caramel, tarte citron and the tarte tatin. Don’t forget to pair your dinner with one of the amazing wines produced at Toulouse. After such a sensorial experience, take a night walk through the city center. Le Bibent is near the Place du Capitole and the city hall (dated 1750). From there, take a nice walk around the narrow historical streets that will lead you to the Pont Neuf, where you can enjoy a magical view. continued on page 120
