Destination guide

Frolic on the French Riviera without draining your bank

This coastline—the Cote d'Azur—has got some serious character and the port city of Toulon is part of it. Set southwest of hotspots like Cannes and St. Tropez, you'll be able to make your buck go a lot further here than elsewhere on this fashionable stretch. This mid-sized city is home to a huge military base and harbor, and you can see submarines and warships, as well as scores of fishing boats with Toulon vacation rentals. You can also visit shops, restaurants, and museums in the Port, bask in the sun on a beach, or admire the seaside views from the top of Mont Faron.

Things to do

You're never bored for long when visiting Toulon

Pack comfy shoes because there're many things to see on foot. Toulon's historic Old Town features an 11th-century cathedral, fountains, and Cours Lafayette, a walking street where you can shop till you drop. Stade Mayol sports arena hosts rugby matches, and if you're a history buff, you'll dig the Musee National de la Marine. Climb in a cable car for an epic Mediterranean view from the 2,000-foot Mont Faron, and while you're up there, visits the big cats at Zoo Fauverie Du Mont Faron. Or slather on some suncreen and kick back on a sandy beach in Le Mourillon.


This historic harbor will float your boat and then some

"That's ancient history!" you might exclaim during a historic walking tour of the naval harbor and surrounding museums. That's because Toulon's rich roots date back to 7th century B.C., and you can feel it in the streets. If you're in the mood for something modern, check out the cool cats at Zoo Fauverie Du Mont Faron, or enjoy a local fish fry at one of the many seafood restaurants. If you're feeling outdoorsy, take a ferry to the island of Corsica, hop on a fishing charter, or head to the beach or admire the view from a Toulon vacation rental.


Hang onto your shades; there's lot of sun and wind

Got sunscreen? Toulon's dry Mediaterranean climate produces hot summers, mild winters, and endless sunny days—in fact, Toulon has more sunshine than any other city in France. You'll rarely need an umbrella unless you're visiting in February or October. You sure won't see snow with a Toulon vacation rental, but you might get a visit from the strong Mistral wind, which provides a blast of fresh air in the hot summer months, but chills in the winter, so bring extra layers. Despite the wind, the St-Mandrier Peninsula shelters the harbor and keeps the waters calm.

Natural features

Set sail for a sunny port that's decked out with cool boats

You'll definitly wanna drop anchor on this waterfront. Toulon has many of those gorgeous features common to the Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur region, including limestone cliffs, rolling hills, and lush landscapes. The 2,000-foot Mont Faron offers an impressive view of the city's red-roofed buildings, sprawling harbor, and St-Mandrier Peninsula in the distance. Maybe you'll even see a whale or some dolphins. Toulon has many paths for bikers, as well as a number of pedestrian-friendly streets. There are coastal parks and hikes, and of course, lots of opportunities to sample local fish as you wander through the harbor.
