This historic municipal building dominates the city. Inside you'll find everything from markets, entertainment, to restaurants. There's even an opera house: Théâtre du Capitole! Go early in the morning to get the red of the sunrise on the brick buildings.
A calming oasis away from the city. Explore the well-manicured Japanese gardens or sit and read a book to soak in the tranquility. If you visit be sure to check out Canal Du Midi which is very close.
Marché Hugo Victor
If you love cooking or just good food, this is the spot to be. From fresh bread to foie gras and an even better cheese selection, you'll be in a food coma by the end of it. We recommend going in the morning so you can sample the most fresh produce. There's also a good selection of wine bars & restaurants upstairs.
Basilica of Saint-Sernin
