Stayed at the Crowne Plaza right by the main Plaza in December. The place was decorated for Christmas and the plaza had a Christmas festival with lots of crafts and food. The restaurants around the plaza are all good and nice to just sit there to enjoy a cup of expresso.

Visited the Christmas Market here surrounded by the historic buildings of the Capitole. It was busy but the layout was good and easy to find your way round. Under the old arcades there are some great cafés and restaurants to enjoy and the lovely old architecture is outstanding. Take some time to wander the narrow streets in this area of... More

I had only ever been to Toulouse airport, so I decided to visit for a day. I took the train, about a 1.2 hour trip and spent a lovely sunny day walking, relaxing and enjoying the people, parks and buildings. I purchased a day card for the metro and found that great, because it is a big place. I dined... More

Place du Capitole is the heart of the city and when I went the Christmas market was on so the place had a great atmosphere. The Hotel de Ville is an incredible and dominates the place.

I live close to Capitole Place so I'm there almost every day. I can't imagine that tourist in Toulouse doesn't visit Capitole. It's a nice place in the heart of the city surrounded by caffés, which are by the way overpriced and overrated (try to find something like St. George place...). After taking couple of pictures of the city's building,... More

OK the Capitole building itself is quite spectacular, particularly the “Neoclassical symmetry and elegance of the (building’s) 130 metre long façade” (Rough Guide, 2007). We missed the market which takes place in the square on a Wednesday and Sunday though there was a small market on the Thursday afternoon when we were there. We thought that more spectacular was the... More
