The freely accessible roof of the big shopping complex Galleries Lafayette provides very good views of the city.

Since the old part of the city is fairly small visitors are often surprised to hear that Toulouse is the fourth largest city of France: The metropolitan area has a population of about 1,3 million.

Toulouse is the capital of the region Midi-Pyrénées, with 45.000 km² the second larges of France.
