Have an early flight out or a late flight in? No need to worry! Treat yourself to a little relaxation in the heart of the Aerospace Valley as you watch the planes landing late into the summer night. Located in Blagnac close to the airport, Radisson Blu Hotel Toulouse Airport is the perfect place to stop and get your bearings.

Stay near Toulouse city center

The hotel is ideally located just 15 minutes from downtown Toulouse, meaning you’ll be able to take full advantage of the city’s many organized events. How about a race? The 18th annual Corrida is held on July 7th. This famous foot race snakes its way through the heart of the city. Another option would be the Toulouse Summer Festival, which delivers lovely nights of music at iconic venues. The Festival runs from July 11th until August 4th.

At Pois Gourmand, chef Ugo Plazzotta creates gastronomic masterpieces using fresh and seasonal ingredients. Make yourself at home in this bygone red-brick building set in the colonial style of the 19th century. The terrace here is blessed with a superb view of the Garonne river. You’ll feel like you can reach out and touch the stars!

Get ready for take-off

Situated just five away minutes from the Airbus factories, the aeronautical center builds and assembles the A380 jumbo jet. You’ll learn the industry’s most carefully guarded secrets during your tour. Visit the Cité de l’Espace theme park to celebrate the Nuit des Étoiles, and find out what it’s like to be a real astronaut in the company of Thomas Pesquet, who spent over six months in orbit around the Earth. Using special equipment, the Drôle d’espace, drôle de vie ! exhibition gives you a rare glimpse into the daily life of astronauts and how space affects the human body.

Many more festivals and exhibitions are coming to Toulouse during the rest of the year. Check them out here.
