This was our second visit to the square, the weather was good and as usual there was plenty going on with market stalls, a live band on stage fund raising for charity and in the next square a brass band also fundraising. Plenty of cafes and bars available with nice statues.

It's a museum without actually being a museum. The murals and ceilings are not to be missed. A must-see when in Toulouse.

Very large square - Nice place to sit & have a coffee, relax and people-watch. Some lovely cafes and restuarants around the square which do set price menus.

Lots of people standing in the dark at midnight in Place du Capitole - no fireworks, no lights, no-one 'leading' the city countdown to 2015 - very disappointed.

A lovely outdoor space in the centre of town. However, as in many big towns, the prices in the restaurants, cafés, bars etc, reflect this. It is a tourist trap. Accept that and you can enjoy the experience. But there are far better places in the centre ville to savour what is on offer.

Place Capitole in the centre of Toulouse is a must when you visit la ville Rose. With lots of cafe's on the square and lots of shopping in the nearby streets, it is hard to avoid Place Capitole when you visit Toulouse. On a sunny day, sit and soak up the sun on the square on one of the many... More

As we live in a small village south of Toulouse we really enjoy the break of coming here for a day. Granted access can be difficult without GPS, but not impossible. Great atmosphere, with many young people, great cafés and very good restaurants. The capitals buildings are gorgeous but nothing to write home about. An added attractions is the popular... More

My favourite place in Toulouse, it's located in the heart of the city and bustling with people walking across. There are shops and restaurants, gets filled with market during christmas eve.

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.
