gets you to the top.

Best way to get to the top of the Faron. You've got a zoo up there waiting for you and an unbelievable view of the Rade. You'll catch a view of the three islands on a good day too.

Best way to see Toulon and all its ships from the top of the mountain. The museum is also worth a visit and we recommend the telepherique to get there!

Great views from the base station
Oct 2019
We walked the 4 km from the port and found it closed because of the wind. It is worth checking to see if it is open on the day you visit. I was a lovely day for the walk and the view from the base station was worth it. I will say it was hazy and not as clear as most of the photos of the site.

Takes you to a great view point
Sep 2019
The cable car ride is included in the local transport system so a 24 hour card included the ride and makes it good value. Even if you don't ant to visit the Liberation Museum it is worth the ride for the view of Toulon set out beneath you, especially on a fine day. The cable car may not run when there are high winds and I am sure the tourist information office will know whether or not it is operational. First ride up is at 10m.

It’s not a zoo per se.

Big cats are taken care of for the good of the animals. Incidentally people can visit. The employees help animals to live fully when they are too old to reproduce (nice retirement).
One of the program is to artificially inseminate endangered species. Visit, discover, and help.

Cool place.

Excellent ride
Sep 2019 • Couples
My husband and I arrived here for opening time and got parked up in the free little car park. We bought our reduced OAP 65+ tickets and went up the mountain in the first car. It was super and the views were fantastic! We enjoyed a coffee in the panoramic restaurant - what views!!
We then walked up to Le Memorial 2nd WW Museum - the reason for our visit...........shut!! Apparently all French museums/monuments are closed on a Tuesday! However, the excitement of our return ride up the mountain and the fantastic views from the top were worth it!

A good way to visit the summit of Mount Faron.
Sep 2019
A six minute ride in the new comfortable cabins takes the visitor to the summit of Mount Faron. On the day we visited, a Tuesday, the museum, zoo and cafe were closed so time at the summit was short. However the views are spectacular and the staff operating the telepherique were courteous and friendly and very used to using visitor's cameras to record the happy scene. Another must for the visitor to this lovely city

Best view of Toulon
Aug 2019 • Family
The good things first:
+ taking the Téléphérique is great fun and not very costly (4 adults for approx. 30€, two way tickets)
+ the mountain offers a great view on Toulon; it is not getting any better
+ there are nice options to take a short walk
+ other things to visit: chapelle Notre-Dame, military memorial, panoramic platform, zoo

What could be better:
- restaurants on top of the mountains are tourist traps; better bring your water and save your money

The earlier the better
Jul 2019 • Family
We arrived when the cable car opened so there were only a few folk ahead of us. It seems though they pack the cable car full of whoever is there and for those squashed in the middle they have not the most pleasant ride.

We did manage to get the photos we wanted and it was interesting to see nearby properties on the way up and also down. The views were far reaching from the top and there is a nice terrace from which to take photographs. We weren't intending to stay too long and took some nice photos from the closed cafe area but it would have been a bit disappointing if we'd fancied a coffee there.
