The core of Toulouse

It is a must to pass this place. The restaurants are rather expensive and a bit touristy, but the view is worth the visit.

A grand and impressive square in the centre of town with large numbers of restaurants, cafes and shops surrounding it and on the roads leading away. A great location to watch the world go by with plenty of choice of where to gain refreshments. Also at this time of year there is the Christmas market.

A large city centre square lined with restaurants, shops and boutiques and filled with tour groups ... not entry though on the day due to the city government holding meetings with a foreign delegation, that was a miss no doubt.

The building is stunning from the outside, but DO go inside to see the fantastic art work,=- HUGE murals covering large walls and ceilings! The scale, the detail, is breath taking. The depict the life and history of Toulouse.

This is where you can sit back with a cup of coffee on any of the many little cafes and just enjoy the town. You also have a lot of shopping stores,carousels for children,bistros where you can grab a bite. It does get a bit noisy and crowded.

This is the second time I visited Toulouse and this time I made it a point to book my stay right in the middle of Place du Capitole. This place is a must visit for anyone visiting Toulouse. Though most of the city is wears a deserted look after 7.30 but this place keeps buzzing with a lot of energy... More

Grab a table on the square, relax with some coffee or wine and watch the world go by. We ate and drank in the various restaurants on the square and loved every minute. Yes it's a little more expensive than some of the side street places, but not by much, and well worth it for the atmosphere and people watching.

This place is the central focus of the city. The day we visited they were erecting multiple white marquis all across the square which obscured the views somewhat. It's a lovely spot though with a few decent restaurants and shops.

A large square flanked by public buildings as well as shops and eateries of various kinds. On a sunny day this is a delightful place, with lots going. Recommended.
