Take all the good bits from Paris – the sophisticated café society, culture, shopping and add a vibrant arty student population – place the city in the south of France, just close enough to Spain to absorb elements of its friendly and relaxed atmosphere, then – if you add a wash of pink across this image – you’ll have Toulouse!
