One can not miss this square as it is at the crossroads of most of the citiy's sites. It is a pretty square and the best part is to visit the city hall and its salle des illustres. On the square, there are also nice cafes from which to people watch.

Very beautiful and interesting square with many wonderful houses, including the famous Opera House. Only the market on the square is poor with many cheap articles. There are many good coffee shops and bars, good restaurants and there are always many people. The neighbouring streets are also interesting for shopping and many museums and galeries are not far from Capitole.

The Capitole building is Toulouse's city hall. It is enormous and imposing. It stands on one side of the square. On the opposite side, the "arcades", a vaulted passage, are a must-stop for a drink and people watching. In between is the square. Don't miss the Cross of the Occitanie on the ground. The Christmas market in December is a... More

Place du Capitole in the heart of Toulouse is a grand, open space, surrounded by classic old buildings, lots of cafés and restaurants, and a number of good retailers -- clothes, cosmetics, and more. We have visited several times, and had drinks in some of the cafés as well as lunches in both casual and finer restaurants. It's a good... More

You can just have a drink at Le Florida and watch the world go by in this large square or if you can go into Le Capitole and see it's staircase and the art of Henri Martin plus some grand rooms which have echoes of Versailles with large chandeliers and elegant windows.

I had high expectations of Toulouse from what I had read previously however I have never been so disappointed visiting a place. Toulouse was one of the worst cities I've visited: dirty, squalid, many beggars, graffiti. The city and river area felt dead, there was no atmosphere. The capital building was ok, but wasn't specular at all. I'm struggling to... More
