We have travelled along the Mediterranean coast of France from Perpignan to Menton, and Toulon old town is up there with the best of them. All the clichés are there, the narrow streets, the bars, bakers and restaurants, the markets, the crumbling palaces, the churches,...More

The streets of Old Town are poorly lit and there is no security in the area. The streets that run perpendicular to the Marina lead to Public Housing. I did not notice this until I was two blocks from the Plaza of the Victor Hugo...More

Interesting old town an easy walk from the Tui Marella Spirit cruise ship we were on. Toulon was probably the destination on our trip with the least amount of exciting activities to check out, but the town centre was pretty nonetheless. There’s a local market,...More

If you are waiting on the boat this is a quit nice town to pass some time. Otherwise i would not recommend. Looks like it use to be a beautiful charming town once. Now it is full of kebab places, men hanging on the street...More

Great for wanderers. The curved streets and limited traffic lead to kids playing ball and locals chatting on the shady side of the street.

Visit Old Town Vieux Ville as it is well worth the time, one thing I love about Europe is there is always an old and a new town so there is a choice. Rustic old buildings, restaurants and shops, statuary interesting sights.

We traveled to Toulon on a cruise ship and then took a daytime walking tour of the old town and other parts of the city. We enjoyed ourselves but could not help but wonder if we should have taken the little tourist type train that...More

Toulon is a subtle charmer, multi-faceted, yet simple in an elegant way. Here you'll find Naval Bases, Universities and a cosmopolitan hub with wide tree-lined avenues and cafes, museums and parks. While it enjoys a Mediterranean climate, if you wish, you can visit Aix-En-Provence or...More

We walked several different streets in Toulon to get to different attractions. We liked the uncrowded, clean, pedestrianized streets, some wider than others, with nice paving. I thought Rue Emile Zola was very nice with its hanging baskets of annuals and attractive facades of apartments...More

We took the "Petit Train" from the waterfront which took us all over the town. We visited the old town winding through the narrow streets which gave us an insight into life early on.
