ShoreTrips says...

Discover Toulon, the second war port of France, with a panoramic tour that will show you the character of this marine city. Passing by the beach area and the Corniche du Mourillon, you will admire the sumptuous vegetation and the beautiful villas on the sea.

You will enjoy a charming guided walking tour which will show you the old town’s small streets and lovely squares: Place de la Liberté - Place Puget and its curious mossy fountain, the main Cathedral, the “Cours Lafayette” market, animated vegetable & fruit market that crosses all the city-centre, lying under the plain trees until the port, the old St Vincent’s washtub, the Opera’s façade, “Raimu” writer square, Globe’s square and more!

Although the city has been powerful military port for century, its bay offers much more than the naval base. The adjacent coast alternates pretty creeks shaded by umbrella pines, high ochre-red cliffs, little fjords or “calanques” sparkling with translucent turquoise waters, golden sandy beaches and picturesque fishing harbors.

Mount Faron’s breathtaking summit mingles sunlit white cliffs, rocky terraces, sweet-smelling underwoods, Mediterranean forests and dazzling flowers, accompanied by a symphony of cicada song! It is accessible by cable car (the only one on the Mediterranean coast) or road.

Inside the Marine museum you will discover the naval history of the city through fantastic painting from the 17een and 18een century, incredible model boats from the 18een used by the seaman’s schools, monumental wood carved figureheads and usual navigation instruments from 17th and 18th Centuries.

It’s by the sea side that you will end your “marine” tour by a panoramic boat trip around the roadstead of Toulon, admiring the cost and the naval base with war ships and dockyard
