It is a classical touristic place found in any cities. Nothing bad, nothing good. A good chocolatier!

We loved the feel of this handsome square, and had a couple of good meals at the restaurants at its edge, while watching the evening promenade of people and dogs. Rue de Rome, off the square, has a wider range of places to eat at cheaper prices (always full of students and with a buzz) but in the Place du... More

Often has lots going on, music, markets, etc. Pleasant, but could do with more seating and clearer deliniation of roads and car park accesses.

Although the architecture of the buildings is not very special, the overall atmosphere is genuine French (at least for a foreigner). Not so much tourists but mainly people living and working in the city made this place unforgettable. Lots of small shops, restaurants or bars is expected. But whichever road from the place you take, you will always find untouched... More

At the heart of Toulouse and at the "feet" of the Capitole, this place is so vibrant with young people, or merchandise in dedicated days that you forget that has a 200 years history. What I did not like is that bikes, motor-bikes or even cars can surround you in each moment in this place wondering who has the priority... More

The extensive Place du Capitole is surrounded by some lovely buildings (in particular the theatre) and is lined with cafes an restaurants. There is always lots going on in the square, whether it's locals and fellow tourists relaxing in the sun, street artists, a political demonstration or students celebrating their return to school. It's also the point of departure for... More
