A short bus ride from the centre of town (buy combined ticket at the tourist information centre) and a magnificent view of the whole of Toulon and the port and dockyard on the trip up and down. At the summit there are a couple of bar/restaurants a very interesting museum and a big cat breeding zoo that is a short... More

Great trip up Mt Faron, you can drive but you miss the spectacular view the telepherique offers. Not too pricey and they even let you bring your mountain bike up and then you can whizz down the Mt! Cute wee chapel and shops await you at the top!

We were in Toulon after catching a ferry from La Seyne where our cruise ship was docked. We were able to get a combined ticket for 6 Euros from the Information Centre near the market in Toulon which was a bargain as it covered us catching the no 40 bus near the Church, the trip in the Cable Car and...

We walked from our cruise ship to the Telepherique - it was an easy walk, only took 40 minutes and was just under 2 miles in length.. will admit the final 100 yard steep hill was a bonus NOT!! We were there around 10am ish on a Sunday, so no queues and we got on virtually straight away. Think it... More

This was a very scenic ride up the mountain with views of the water, city and mountains. Up top had great views as well and cool hiking paths. The only down side was the cart operators crammed way to many people in at a time so it wasn't as relaxing or romantic as it could have been.

Ok so I'm in Toulon for obstacle racing. Thought after reading on TA to go up the cable car. Got there it was closed. Didn't bother me I wanted to get to the top. So I climbed/ran up it. Got lost several times but that's what adventuring is all about! All the way up the views are amazing! Even stumbled... More

This is not for the "Telepherique", this is for the view. Toulon is mainly a French Navy harbor type city, busy, international, beautiful and ugly in a matter of a few street, clean and dirty, noisy. You go up to the top of Mont Faron, you are directly above all that, in the middle of the forest, with the Provence... More

If you're in Toulon, then this is a must! Not only do you get the cable car ride, but the views onto Toulon are magnificent, the walks in the forest are lovely and while you are at the summit you can also visit a museum, a church and a "fauverie" (a sort of zoo, but more of a wild cat... More

We got the No 40 bus to the cable car went to the top enjoyed the views had expensive drinks !! Looked at... More

Just go for the view alone. Small restaurant at the the top. All likes nothing to dislike. Possibility to visit the zoo at the top too.
