Toulouse city hall is a wonderful building with wonderfully ornate rooms adorned with impressive paintings and what look like marble columns but which are in fact, cleverly painted ones. Also loved the beautiful herringbone pattern oak flooring. Apparently up to 30 couples get to make their marriage vows in one of the beautiful spaces in this building every week.

You might pass by the place: great, old and ...Pink, as name's city, thanks to its bricks! Lots of fine French Brasserie, 5* Hotels (Grand Balcon, Crown Plaza, Opera) and restaurants are set there. Just a note: 5€ per coffee isn't cheap -You're in the Capitole. On the floor, in the centre, you can see the Occitan Cross and Astral... More

This has got to be one of the worst and ugliest squares in Europe that is replete with some of the most beautiful ones. It is symbolic of this dirty, shabby, run down city as a whole. It almost seems like an undeveloped country with beggars and homeless all around, teeming with immigrants, garbage strewn everywhere. In the morning between... More

the main square, lots of restaurants. eat your main meal as a plat du jour at lunch, good value! sodas can be surprisingly expensive, as are fast-foods- rather eat at a proper restaurant!

This is by far one of the most gorgeous squares in Europe I've come across, spacious, historical and buzzing with life. It's a mecca for food lovers and shopping lovers with diverse roads leading away from it full of shops and restaurants, coffee shops and eateries of all sorts. Toulouse is lovely and this is a must-see. It's a pity... More

View this beautiful palace whilst traveling on boat on the Sign river. Specially just after sunset. You can see the most important building on the side of the river.

Nothing special but nothing wrong with it. I think many cities around the world make the mistake of allowing cheesy cheap markets to be held in places like this. It's often just junk and rubbish and detracts from the piazza. The streets off to the side are far more interesting and there are other piazzas in Toulouse far more inviting.

It has turned into a bazaar, since last time I was there (1981), filled with stalls of junk. So lunch at one of the terraces on this Grande Place looks onto the marketplace of vendors and bargain seekers. Not so charming. I wish it would move some place else. The square has lost all of its grandeur.

Classic square with lots of original features to entice the visitor. Cafe society of every hue on all sides. Beautiful architecture to sit and ponder as you cradle a drink or stop for a chat. Art and culture surround you all the time, from street music to exceptional performances and exhibitions. Wander away from the bustle of the square and... More

Bring your earplugs! Although the authorities manage to limit car traffic, they do NOTHING against these hundreds of motorcycles. Therefore, they let the situation get even worse! Because each motorbike is ten times noisier than a car! As a result, you can't sit at an outdoor cafe terrace without enjoying this heavy noise and pollution. Avoid! Go to pedestrian-friendly Bordeaux... More
