Best time to visit Toulouse

The most popular time to visit Toulouse is between June and September (summer to early autumn). Temperatures during this time range from the mid- to high twenties and the rainfall stays around 40mm. This is the peak tourist season, which means that the cost of hotels and attractions will rise, due to the greater influx of tourists, which will also result in the drop in room availability. Consider staying in May (mid-spring) and October (mid-autumn). The rainfall during May is around 60 mm, but Toulouse is beautiful anytime of the year, and the cost of hotel rooms will drop and the availability will rise.
