The lesser known of Toulouse: surprising discovery

Exceptional route, fantastically performed by Roberto. It leaves the most touristy places of the pink city and has a more human character than what is traditionally considered historical. Although history is not lacking in ansoluto. Totally recommendable Not to miss it.
