make a route, and then click on "link" in the right corner. it gives you the link to the route that you made.

it's quite expensive. reims - metz 13 € for 170km for example. but Paris is toll free.

the french tolls are really frightening... but nevertheless, they have top-shape autoroutes, you see where all the money goes

another thing... Isn't the northern approach to paris impressing? Passing Charles de Gaulle, you drive a long, long time through the outskirts virtuelly seeing nothing and then at the very end, you enter the super-urban depressed part of A1 near Port de la Chapelle - great Althogh, at the interchange with BP, I cannot help me but always feels a bit like eastern Europe with the towers ;-)

. Saragossa is signed until the border and then it isn't signed until the start of Huesca's bypass. French things...
Edit: "Le Somport" is actually the Spanish Candanchú ski resort.

I like this sign with my hometown signed. I hope they sign Pau on A-23 near Jaca when finished. (It's near finished, but on hold )

Thanks! I've seen Tarbes Airport from the N21 twice this holiday. Didn't really seem like a large airport to me

Close to Tarbes Airport the N21 is currently widened to 2×2, by the way.

A64 Tarbes-Toulouse

This is the second set of pictures of my holiday, and the last set of the A64.

A map of the route. Tarbes-Toulouse is about 150 km.

[img]http://i30.************/11maouw.jpg[/img]

The pics:

1. There we go!

image hosted on flickr


2. Viaduct.

image hosted on flickr


3. It was a pretty cloudy day.

image hosted on flickr


4. A lorry. I haven't seen many of them on this route.

image hosted on flickr


5. Just too late unfortunately.

image hosted on flickr


6. A couple of viaducts.

image hosted on flickr


7. Exit Auch.

image hosted on flickr


8.

image hosted on flickr


9. Nice viaduct.

image hosted on flickr


10.

image hosted on flickr


11. Local exit.

image hosted on flickr


12. Toulouse and Foix are the control cities on this route. After exit Foix only Toulouse remains.

image hosted on flickr


13. Exit Foix is the next one.

image hosted on flickr


14. It's a bit busier over here.

image hosted on flickr


15. Zoomed.

image hosted on flickr


16.

image hosted on flickr


17. Kilometermarker 213.

image hosted on flickr


18.

image hosted on flickr


19. Péage in 1500 meters.

image hosted on flickr


20. Traffic is usually well informed about an upcoming péage so there's enough time left to brake down.

image hosted on flickr


21. Stripes warning you to brake down.

image hosted on flickr


22. The péage.

image hosted on flickr


23. Pay!

image hosted on flickr


24. The exit of péages is usually a large "field" of asphalt slowly narrowing down to the motorway. This can cause chaotic situations where accidents easily can occur.

image hosted on flickr


25. We're on the motorway again.

image hosted on flickr


26. Wanna go to Andorra? Follow Foix!

image hosted on flickr


27. This section is toll-free. Toll-free sections logically have more exits and tend to be a little busier.

image hosted on flickr


28. River. I'm not sure which one it is but I think that it's the Garonne.

image hosted on flickr


29. Exit Foix in 1 km.

image hosted on flickr


30. Traffic for Toulouse still has to follow the A64.

image hosted on flickr


31.

image hosted on flickr


32.

image hosted on flickr


33. Next exit ahead.

image hosted on flickr


34. The exit. Exits in France tend to have very short exit/entry lanes like the A4 in Germany, east of Bad Hersfeld.

image hosted on flickr


35. Unsharp picture, but Toulouse is still 62 km.

image hosted on flickr


36. Another exit.

image hosted on flickr


37. On the map it is also visible that the A64 is completely straight in this section.

image hosted on flickr


38. Because of the bushes it's not visible, but there's a traffic jam on the other side.

image hosted on flickr


39. The jam was about 5 km long and it was caused by a small accident.

image hosted on flickr


40. Still very straight; Toulouse 52 km.

image hosted on flickr


41. Here the short exit lane is well visible.

image hosted on flickr


42. The landscape isn't very exiting around here.

image hosted on flickr


43.

image hosted on flickr


44. Another exit.

image hosted on flickr


45. Small building next to the motorway.

image hosted on flickr


46. Aire.

image hosted on flickr


47. A lorry with problems.

image hosted on flickr


48.

image hosted on flickr


49.

image hosted on flickr


50. Exit Muret.

image hosted on flickr


51.

image hosted on flickr


52. Look! A real exit-lane!

image hosted on flickr


53. We're approaching Toulouse.

image hosted on flickr


54. Another péage. We didn't get a ticket over here, as it's only a péage in between two exits.

image hosted on flickr


55. Péage ahead.

image hosted on flickr


56.

image hosted on flickr


57. You have to look well which lane to take as there are several different ways to pay the toll. We've paid the toll using creditcard, except for this time. From the way south, my parents still remembered that it was €1,70 so we had already prepared that I took the train south so I couldn't remember it

image hosted on flickr


58. The street lights are okay.

image hosted on flickr


59. It becomes 2×3.

image hosted on flickr


60.

image hosted on flickr


61. The end of the A64 is approaching. Here you have to choose whether you take the inner or the outer ringroad of Toulouse. I've hardly seen any roadnumbers on Toulouse's ringroad, btw.

image hosted on flickr


62. We follow Paris/Bordeaux.

image hosted on flickr


63. Bye bye A64!

image hosted on flickr


That's it again. I hope you enjoyed it!

note that the section beetwen Tarbes est and Capvern is toll free, even if you don't remark this if you continue on the motorway, cause it was built by the French state back in the days
also the A 64 from Martres Tolosane to Toulouse is so straight cause this section is a motorway upgrade of the old RN 117

That's right. IMO the most interesting landscape en route from Toulouse to the Netherlands was on the A20 near Limoges. Quite a hilly area. I also have pics of this section, but I still have to upload them.

The normal front are city name while the italic are district or area of the city.
Le Mirail or Empalot are districts of Toulouse, the same for centre that means center.

The same goes to traditional, touristic places in France? About using the Italic font...
