My rating is for the Capitole Public Rooms because it was impossible to get in to look around the Opera House which was closed for the summer.

The Capitole is in the centre of Toulouse's old city close to the tourist information office. Don't miss these beautiful murals - it's like a mini-Versailles. Another plus is no admission is charged.

while the outside is impressive, the inside is better. Seeing the historical trubidors welcoming visitors on the grand staircase. The upstairs have beautiful ceiling paintings and statutes.

I visited the theater with a friend to attend the Opera. the performance was wonderful. My only complaint was that we were in the highest tier and the seats did not even qualify as benches. After the first two hours, I elected to stand because the seats were too hard on my back and legs. Other than that, recommended.

Went to an excellent production of Don Carlos with a world-class cast. It is a small house with very good accoustics,rebuilt after WWI and is one of the best opera houses in France.

Great for a stroll after dinner in the evening. The lights and atmosphere are wonderful!! We got some ice cream and enjoyed the evening. Great place for people watching too.

Imposing Mairie on an open square with the Occitane cross and star signs laid out on the square. It's always bustling, sometimes with a market, a demo, music, the Christmas fair. I love it!
