Panoramic view.

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.

We quite often take cable car rides, as they can be fun and we enjoy the views from the top. So when we saw there was one in Toulon, which we were visiting for a day on a cruise, we decided to give it a go. Firstly, the negative. We found this to be one of the slowest cable cars... More

We used a travellers day pass to use the Ferry, boat and cable car up the mountain. not crowded at the top so it was a very good walk around which led us to the zoo/breeding house which is up there too along with a military memorial which you can pay to look around (€4).

We used the Telepherique with a day pass purchased at the tourist office just off the seafront. The pass cost 6 euro and also allowed access to buses and pleasure boats. Amazing VFM. Telepherique can get busy as it only holds about 14 people so expect to queue on steps and in the sun. Disabled access is provided. The ride... More

Ok, so lets be very honest. There isn't much to do in Toulon. We arrived there on a cruise ship, and really weren't interested in taking the all day tours into Provence. So we read about the telepherique and decided to try it. If you go to the Tourism Office to buy your ticket it is 6 euro and includes... More

The ride is very enjoyable and once you get to the top of Mont Faron you are instantly overwhelmed by the beauty of the bay. You need to be aware of the high temperatures if you have health problems, especially high blood pressure. The magnificent view helps you recharge your bateries.

A must-do if you are visiting the lovely city of Toulon! You can buy tickets in the tourist office for €6 that cover both the bus (no 40) & the cable car. The trip in the cable car is amazing, if a little scary..but it's worth it when you get to the top. The views are amazing. There are beautiful... More

This was a fantastic day out for the whole family. You can buy a €6 euro ticket from the Toulon ticket office. It gives you unlimited bus trips and a return trip on the cable car. You need to take the number 40 bus from town. It takes around twenty minutes to arrive at the bottom of the cable car.... More

We took the cable car to Mont Faron. Lovely little café at the top with great coffee. We caught the bus from the square right at the pier stop. This is the local bus and goes right past the Cable Car stop. The ticket includes the return bus ride and cable car entry. Go to the in formation centre on... More

I'm afraid of heights but this wasn't bad at all. The views of Toulon and the mountains are spectacular. The cable cars come along every few minutes so there's very little waiting. If you're a hiker this is good for you.
