Le Capitole is an imposing city hall dominating the main square in Toulouse. Open from 8.30 to 19.00, it offers a series of impressive reception rooms where civic events and weddings take place.

Nice theatre. Relatively confortable seating. Watch a play all the way up in 'paradise' section that was not fun... I did not know there is no elevator and I took my grandma who is in her 80s. (and the view is not good from up there, seats have no back; its sort of a bench. The lower levels are fine,... More

It's in the centre of Toulouse and very spacious here. It's great for a walk around or simply for a coffee (there's lots of cafe bar around). you can also hire a bike here and do biking around Toulouse, it's really peaceful and freshing!

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. Who ever set up this thread at Trip Advisor has used a photo of the centre of the Capitole building which is the Town Hall and NOT the Opera wing. I note at... More

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.

The only impressive place in Toulouse, other than Airbus, the paintings are beautiful worth visiting. The best time to spend here is in the evening.

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.

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.
