The center is the Capitole, the current Hôtel de Ville, theater, and opera house, on the square of the same name. More...

Toulouse has several historic, beautiful, and large churches and other religious buildings, ranging from St-Sernin to the wonderfully-named St-Pierre des Cuisines, to the Jacobin Convent, to Notre Dame du Taur. More...

You can also find a variety of museums, from the art collection of the Fondation Bemberg to the Natural History Museum to aerospace museums. More...

As you walk through the streets, you'll see a variety of beautiful historic homes, particularly on streets such as the Place et Rue Mage.

If you want to shop, head to the Rue St-Rome, which is lined with stores. More...

Toulouse sits on the Garonne River, and also the Canal du Midi and the smaller Canal de Brienne. Some excursions on the Canal du Midi leave from Toulouse.
