While this is not one of Europe's bests markets, it is unique that it is an actual market and not just for tourists. Walk the back streets and have a friendly coffee!

toulon was the first port of call on our recent barcelona-venice cruise on HAL. in general, we find ship excursions to be rather costly; and, since we have been to marseilles before (70 km from toulon) and also to eze, we decided to tour toulon on our own. as the title suggests, the old town is a walker's delight! the...

Absolutely nothing to do here. It's not often that you can say that you can have a better time on the ship than at the port of call.... but this is it. Toulon, France is not the place you want to be. 14 cruises and I've finally found the worst place to visit.

Considered a very small old town. Many tattoos restaurants can be found. A nice place to walk and relax. D"If in Nice don't miss it.

The old town was not that old and very dirty and covered with graffiti. Our tour guide made a point of pointing out the "no urinating" signs. Don't waste your time here

This is a small French town which serves as a port for Norwegian cruise lines. Dominated by a naval history museum. Walkable from the ship.

We spent a lovely few hours wandering around the old town, lots of bars and cafes to have a rest. Quaint shops, beautiful parks and very close to the beach. Excellent afternoon!

Charming, but there are better old towns in a variety of ports on the Med and southern Europe. Do your walking in the early morning before the town wakes up. Mont Faron is way over rated. Market worth a visit and food break.

Old town is worth to see. City center is full of beautiful buildings with green and blue shutters. City is not crowded, rather quiet. Yo can wander a lot between cosy streets, fountains and restaurants.
