Start your weekend in the department of Tarn-et-Garonne by checking out the city of Montauban and discovering its architecture, typical of the region's fortified towns. Take in the Place National and its double row of rib-vaulted arcades. Stop at the Ingres museum, which used to be both city hall and an episcopal palace. You'll find the works of art of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres and Émile Antoine Bourdelle, two of the city’s celebrated artists. If you've booked a room at our Campanile hotel in Montauban, don't miss the fortified Saint-Jacques Church, either.
During your week-long stay in Montauban, you’ll have time to explore the city’s diverse heritage. First take in the city’s many monuments, like the Pont Vieux (Old Bridge) and Notre-Dame Cathedral. For a cultural break, visit the natural history and prehistory museum or the Museum of the Resistance and Fighter and stop by the city’s Ancien Collège. From our Campanile hotels in the Occitanie region, you can also discover the major city of Toulouse, which is about 50 kilometers south of Montauban.
Planning to visit Montauban with your family? For a nature break, take a stroll through the Jardin des Plantes or along the Foucault trail, or try a cruise down the Tarn. You can also visit the region's farms, which will delight the children. With your teens, try karting, bowling or laser quest. Not far from Montauban, you can also go horseback riding at the neighboring equestrian centers. Last, from Campanile hotels in the department of Tarn-and-Garonne, spend an afternoon at the multi-recreation center in Bressols or at Montauban's aquatic complex.
