Old world meets new world here.... and this area is rich with history! On our recent visit here, we were in awe of the main old buildings, but more so of the juxtaposition of the old and the very modern surrounding it and intertwined.

Big central square (a little like St. Marks). Shops, walking and the tourist 'train' leaves from here

We liked the multitude of choices of things to eat and drink. Nice ambience in the evening. We were there after a triathlon had happened durin the afternoon so there was lots of celebrations everywhere. But everyone was very well behaved.

Impressive town square, but nothing awesome. Didn't help that it was raining though. Much more interesting places in the city.

We happened to visit on the same day that the TRIATHLON DE TOULOUSE (30 August 2015) was happening so the square was transformed. I would have liked to have seen the horoscope signs that are normally visible in the floor in front of the Capitol building that my Friend told me about. However, I do appreciate that the guys taking... More

Hello all, The Capitole and its square right in the center of Toulouse worths the visit, this shows how italian and even Florentine this city may look like, despite being quite close to Spain. Please take the time to visit the reception hall and lounges inside the Capitolium building. The Reception Hall "Les Illustres" (The Illustrious) is fantastic: a quite... More

Terrific for people watching while enjoying a leisurely elongee or a fine meal. There's nothing quite like a plaza in southern France -- as much Spain or Italy as France. Occitan, in fact.

A very impressive place and once you have done a tour with Toulouse walking tours you realise just how wonderful this place and city is. Make sure you walk around the edges where the cafe's are and look up at the ceilings you will be amazed at the art work/

Great place to hang out and see other travellers . The centre of the Capitole is occupied by hawkers selling a collection of goods. Local teenagers hang around in the evening . Look at the floor in front of the Capitole and you can see the signs of the Zodiac.
