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.

Any visit to Toulon would not be complete without a trip on the Telepherique du Mont Faron. The views from the top are sensational and having a coffee with such an amazing backdrop overlooking the city is very special. Plenty of things to see and do - with interesting walks; historical artefacts and of course the Napoleonic battle placements.

Recently took this cable car up to Mont Faron during a short day trip to the Port of Toulon on our Mediterranean cruise. There's not an extraordinary amount to do at the top but you can definitely get some wonderful panoramic photos. Definitely a must see for those on a budget but that want to actually see something. (The town... More

I really enjoyed going up to Mount Faron with this ´telepherique' which runs every 10 minutes or so. It is really worth buying the day pass since you have a free access to the bus and 2-way ticket for the telepherique. Once up there, the view is amazing and it is worth spending 3-4 hours across some trails. Just take... More

Buy the day pass from the tourist office for 6€ and get unlimited bus and shuttlebus travel, plus a return trip on the cable car. Take the number 40 bus from the stop next to the tourist office until you get to the cable car stop, you can't mistake it for any other stop. Then, if you have the day... More

We had a nice family day out at the top of the Mont Faron. Firstly we went from la Seyne sur mer to Toulon by the ferry boat, then the bus 40 to rejoin the the bottom of the mont faron at the start of the cable car. The view is amazing and embraces the entire coast from Carqueiranne in... More
