Most people thought this stop was pointless, but we can make anything fun! We explored the small town, saw the market and then took the cable car to the top of Mount Faron! Amazing view, everyone should do this! We then ate at the top and enjoyed the afternoon!

Toulon is a smaller coastal town/French Navy base. There are not many attractions in the actual town, mostly just naval muesems, however, it was absolutely beautiful to walk around the streets on our own and enjoy both a cappuccino and wine at the cafes. They had a neat little market area too.

Not a very nice port, best used as somewhere to travel from than to visit, I actually thought the town was quite seedy it’s a naval port at core, as mentioned by others bypass Toulon and visit St Tropez or Aix etc
