You'll need to take a bus to reach the cable car. The locals are not speaking English at all, use signs to help them understand, or French. The view is amazing, one of the best. There is a small local restaurant in the top, also a museum and zoo 500m walking from the cable car. The zoo is not worth... More

It'a thw most immportant attraction in the city. The view is really beautiful and it's easy to reach the top of the mountain. You can hike it, go by car or just take the cable car, wich also offers a great view. There's a coffee shop, some souvenir stores, restaurants and an interesting museum up there.

This is the cable car to the top of Mt. Faron. The day we went there was no line and we rode right up. Great views on the ride and at the top. Couple of restaurants and a gift shop at the top but the view is the star. You can buy a day transport ticket that includes the bus... More

Great and inexpensive cable car to top of mountain. Provides great views of infinity pools and mountains. We went to the zoo that has great baboons, lions, tigers and other unexpected delights. The views from top are spectacular and I could have sat in the bar adjacent to cable car for hours. A must do if in Toulon.

We really enjoyed our journey on the telepherique while we were in Toulon. There was some queue but it did not take too long. Had some nice walks on the mountain too. It's worth it. Amazing views of Toulon and Revest les-eaux.

You can drive up Mont Faron but unless you are on a motorbike or a glutton for cycling punishment the cable car is the only way to go!

This is a must do in Toulon. There are a number of local buses that will take you to Mont Faron for the centre of Toulon, the nos. 40 and 3 are just just two. After reading a very helpful review from a Tripadvisor contributor, I discovered that you can buy a one day transport ticket for 7.50 euro that... More

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
