Touristic visits in Toulouse on Sunday, 23 June

If you have the opportunity to arrive in Toulouse on June 22 or before, you can enjoy visiting Toulouse on Sunday, June 23.

Once the capital of the Visigoths, and today capital of the aerospace industry, Toulouse invites you to explore its 2000 years of history. Its churches, its cathedral and its basilica retrace the Roman origins and the religious influence of Toulouse through the ages. The mansions (private palaces) evoke the Golden Age of the Renaissance and the pastel trade. 

Toulouse, an aviation pioneer, is today the leading European center for aeronautics and is home to some exceptional sites to visit, such as Airbus with its A380 tour.

We offer 2 half-day visits that will be held in parallel on Sunday afternoon.

If you are interested in any of these visits, you have to mention it when you register for the conference. 

The fees for one half-day visit are 30 € / person.
