Let's explore the coolest places Toulouse has to offer in the summer and have a special water tour !
We can start earlier at the Protected content for those of you who have ( incredibly) never had a chance to take photos of the lovely pond with the red bridge and wooden pavillion , at around 2 PM .
Then we can walk down allées de Barcelone along the Canal de Brienne ( If you are interested, I can tell you some facts about the canals in the city ) until we get to the Protected content , where the rest of you can meet us at around 3PM .
There are two things you shouldn't miss , apart from the free exhibition on the Garonne ( live salmons on show) : the Hublot, an underground window on the inside of the river , and the huge catfishes ( silures) 2 or 3 meter , long right at the foot of the building, more exciting pics.

We can then phone the boat taxi and be dropped wherever we wish on the other side of the river, for only two euros ; It takes only three people, so those who are not interested in visiting theProtected content can go first. We can be dropped at the end of Prairie des Filtres, walk through Toulouse Beach and end the tour at the guinguette or at Port Viguerie, and have a well deserved drink there.
( It is a kid friendly tour, if they are old enough to walk some and interested in learning facts.)
