How can you enjoy the sights in Toulouse while avoiding the crowds?

Difficult to avoid crowds as it's a busy city, but we threw street cred to the wind and jumped on the tourist train (Place du Capitole) which allowed us to rest our feet in the heat of the day while getting a feel for the layout of the city, what to go back and explore later and what looked like interesting places to eat or shop. Toulouse made me think of Paris in miniature but people friendly! Lovely patisseries in side streets and cafes in Place Wilson to watch the world go by while rehydrating. Would definitely return.

The markets and the slower pace of life in contrast to Paris. The food in the cafe's and restaurants was amazing as were the wines offered. Friendly people and very easy to get a cross what you wanted with the language barrier. They are obviously used to tourist. Easy walking to get anywhere around the Capitole.

immerse in the everyday life of the city, walk around, with or without a map. Many of the houses have got a plaque that explains the history behind. Walk in the market place, enjoy the smell of all the fresh produce and go for an amazing lunch on top of the market place.

Having a multi-day pass for the efficient public transport system was excellent for getting around. Good underground system for inner city and trams for more distant suburban destinations.
