After getting off the cruise ship and studying the map, we decided to walk to the cable car..... map was not to scale and we then realised, after about an hour of walking in intense heat and sunshine, when once again we stopped to asked directions from another local that we had probably made a mistake when he said "are...

There are not so many things to do up there except for hiking, so if you like hiking like me it's a great idea to take that cable car.

Took the city bus to the cable car. Rode up to see the views. This was a difficult process that should not be. Had to find the tourist center to purchase bus and cable car tickets. The city bus was full of both locals and tourists. In June there could have been more buses as it was close to a... More

An absolute must for anyone visiting Toulon. Easy to find and tickets were relatively cheap from memory. Several bars and cafes at the top with terraces where you can enjoy the spectacular views. The telepherique is closed Monday AM but think it's open pretty much the rest of the time

Reasonably priced. Short wait times. Fun family activity. Not a lot to do at the summit. Restaurants, tired gift shop and some more amenities under construction during our visit.

Mont Faron provides a spectacular view of the port of Toulon and the Mediterranean. The telapherique is a fun ride and the easiest way to the top of Mont Faron.

Friend and I (26yo) visited the Telepherique whilst in Toulon. Great value for both of us to get up on the cable car. It is walkable from the town centre (google search for gare de telepharic mont faron or similar). Takes 30-45mins, but quite steep at end. When up there the views are good (best view over Toulon from the... More

This coastline is incredible and the only way to fully appreciate its beauty is from top. The tram operates frequently and we spent only an hour at the top exploring. We would suggest some more time but the late afternoon is best in my option. If your up for more hikes, go early and stay the only day. You will... More

Must do when in Toulon. Under 10 EU per person. The only way to see the whole city, the ocean, the bay, the cruise ships. For all ages, as my mom is 74 and enjoyed greatly. We took a Taxi to Telepherique, not to far from downtown. But I would say is a 15 walk uphill. Taxi around 9EU. Even... More
