After circling around our hotel in a state of semi-panic more than a few times because all the approaches we should have taken in order to access a car park were blocked by extensive roadworks happening on Allée Jean Jaurès and Boulevard Bonrepos.
Eventually, we decided to park at a multi-story car park next to Gare de Toulouse Matabiau.
Must take a picture so I won’t forget where our car is.
The mainline station was undergoing a major facelift…
After checking in at the hotel, we headed back to the station. ‘Mum, why don’t we try the metro?’ We needed to do some shopping and there weren’t many shops around our hotel.
There were two policemen in the station concourse when we walked in. So I asked one of them if he could point us towards the metro entrance. He told us to use the stairs further up and to follow the sign. I thanked him and we headed to the stairs.
Which ticketing machines are for the metro???
I can’t remember which one was the correct one but eventually I managed to buy two sets of the returns for us.
Down the escalator…
And on the platform…
We used the line A from Marengo-SNCF to Capitole.
Our little adventure in Toulouse commences!
