If Paris is for lovers, Toulouse is for explorers. There’s something unusual to discover at every turn in this southern French capital, whether you’ve come for the food, the art, or simply a dose of the region’s hallmark convivialité. Situated midway between the Mediterranean and Atlantic on the banks of the Garonne River, Toulouse has been a vibrant trade hub since pre-Roman times. But the clanging belfries, serpentine backstreets, and timber-framed houses belie a city far more modern than meets the eye. Zen gardens, trendsetting wine bars, killer vintage shopping—you name it: The Toulouse of today goes far beyond cathedrals and cassoulet.—Benjamin Kemper
