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

Lovely views of Toulon and the bay from the cable car and summit. Pleasant walks and trails. Family enjoyed the zoo but seemed pricy for the size. Two restaurants but both pricy so preferred to eat by the harbour We booked tickets for cable car at Tourist office in town and they confirmed cable car was running ( it stops... More

The station for the telepheric is half way up the hill, unless you want a really good walk, get the bus or a cab... it is about 30 minutes from the port and the last 15 are up a pretty steep incline.. The cost was €7.00 return and the cars run every 6-7 minutes. The view is pretty amazing once... More

Not the longest cableway neither the most impressive but the view on the bay of Toulon is awesome, because of the bay itself. It allows avoiding to drive on the narrow little road to the top of the mont Faron. But somewhat expensive. To do once for the fun of it.

No waiting for cable cart, beautiful clear skies so views were amazing! When arriving at the restaurant at the top we ordered drinks and tried ordering food but the staff were probably the most ignorant I've ever come across. I asked for a meal but they had no bread or olives then 5 minutes later brought out the same meal... More

Went there on a sunny calm mid-week day, walked up from the port, only to find it shut! Reading the opening times on the wall it should have been open, as best I could tell from the French sign. Somewhat mystified why it wasn't operating.

A breath taking view of Toulon, a nice way to spend a sunny afternoon, a good little restaurant with reasonable prices, a small but Nice Zoo (small charge) , not to be missed when on a weekend in Toulon.
