Fantastic view of the bay and valley. We were cruising the riviera so had researched ports of call and the Toulon cable car looked attractive. Our research said it was 7 Euros, but we were told at the information desk to go to tourist information for joint bus & cable car ticket. Combined return ticket 6 euros! and it's about... More

Get a l'jour telepherique ticket from tourist office. Bus 40 was fab. Attendant superb but quiet. Lovely views from top of cable car line. Museum closed for lunch (and Monday!). Picnic area au naturel but quiet and peaceful. One cafe open.

Bought tickets at the tourist information center in the central market area. Took the city bus which is across the street from the tourist information center to the tram. About a 15 minute bus ride, the bus stop is a half block from the tram station. The gondola cars are old and sways in the wind. The views are great... More

If you have the time and the weather is good I would recommend going up the Télépherique at Mont Faron, There are Cafés and a shop and restaurant for refreshment. A great way to see the coastal views.. I love it very much .. I see the same in cairo ( porto sokhna). Enjoy your time

The Telepherique (cable car) in an excellent way to view Toulon and the surrounding area, with excellent photo opportunities. There is public transportation from where the cruise ship docks to to Mont Faron.

Princess cruise stopped for only one day in France... here. It was a Sunday & not much was available so we walked up to the cable car (about 1/2 hour, strenuous) & then rode it up the mountain. We enjoyed a semi-clear day to see the countryside (& our ship) Pleasant restaurant at the top for a glass of wine.... More

Easily the best value for your money, go the tourist information center and purchase a combo bus and cable car ticket for 6 euro's. Then hop on the bus it will take you right to the cable car. There are a couple of restaurants once you get up there, we went in October, the weather was perfect.

Hello. It was a good choice for an outstanding view of Toulon. Check before the weather. It may be cloudy and you will miss all the fun. Try also the zoo and Sublime point?

Waiting in line to board the cable car was no big deal, what was a big deal was after boarding and being 100' above ground, +/- 20', I wanted off and I wanted off now! But there's no conductor onboard, when the one on the top of Mont Faron was ready and the one at the bottom was as well,... More
