Place du Capitole Tours

Place du Capitole
Place du Capitole, a huge pedestrianized open space in the heart of Toulouse, serves as the main city square. Flanked by grand municipal buildings, the square includes the long neo-classical facade of Capitole, the city hall, built in the 1750s. Cafes also cluster around the edge of the massive square, which hosts outdoor markets and is floodlit at night.

Along with administrative functions, the pink brick Capitole building also houses the Théâtre du Capitole opera house, as well as the Salles des Illustres, which includes many 19th-century paintings of the city’s famous citizens.

On the square’s western side is a series of roofed arcades; look up as you stroll to see the history of Toulouse represented on the ceiling panels, from prehistoric times through today’s aeronautics industry.

Practical Info

Place du Capitole is in the Old Quarter, served by the Capitole metro.

Address: Place du Capitole, Toulouse 31000, France

Toulouse: Walking through history

Toulouse: Walking through history

As a private tour guide I have a privilege to work with people who travel at their own pace. Most of them come to France to expand their knowledge about the country history and culture but also to relax and to have a good time. My walking tour is designed to create for my clients a relaxed atmosphere that makes them feel at ease in a foreign culture. My goal is not only to show them the important monuments and landmarks but also to share with them my love for France, its culture and its people. While striving to offer my clients a good service, I try to make their stay in Toulouse enjoyable and unforgettable.

Harry's Basilica and Riverbank Private Walking Tour

Harry's Basilica and Riverbank Private Walking Tour

star-5
This is an English Language Tour. Visiting Toulouse? Want to know what there is to do, to see? These are the questions I'll answer for you on this Tour. Salted with history and peppered with anecdotes, taking this Tour will not only make you feel like you posses a figurative "Menu" of what Toulouse has to offer, but that you have already seen the sights and enjoyed a tasty first course. This is an afternoon Tour but the Tour itself is the same as the Free Tour I give on alternating mornings and carries the same name. Unlike the Free Tour this Tour has been created for people who don't like the large crowds that can sometimes accompany Free Tours. On this Tour places are limited to a maximum of 15.
