For your first day in Toulouse, treat yourself to a good breakfast in Place du Capitole. Early morning, there are few people around and the square belongs to you! The magnificent Basilica Saint-Sernin awaits at the end of the Rue du Taur. Archeology enthusiasts should visit the Museum Saint-Raymond, just next door.
From Place du Capitole and Rue d’Alsace-Lorraine, head to the Victor-Hugo market. Choose one of the restaurants located on the market floor to enjoy good fresh produce.
Head back to Place Wilson for some shopping along Rue d’Alsace-Lorraine on the way to the Museum des Augustins. Next, head back to Capitole via the very busy Rue St-Rome. Enter the keep and go up to the Capitole rooms to enjoy beautiful views.
