lots of bays to visit but this one has a big difference. It's military! If you're lucky you get to see the aircraft carrier charles de Gaulle. Apart from that there are always lots of less spectacular ships to see. It's also the crossing to corsica. Best place to see it is from the Faron up high.

We were in Toulon for the day and this was a must-do trip for us. We bought reduced tickets at the Office de Tourisme and were in place for the trip in very good time.

We sat at the front and it was just an excellent. We forgot to ask if there was a commentary in English, but I speak French, so it was not too much of a disadvantage, although there is a lot of technical language used, naturally.

It was very exciting seeing all the French Navy boats - especially the aircraft carrier ‘Charles de Gaulle’ and the nuclear submarines in their sheds, along with destroyers and patrol boats.

The tour visited all the harbour inlets and was very comprehensive. We were aboard about 75 minutes and I would thoroughly recommend this trip.

I was amazed at the activity I saw at Toulon Harbour. Cruise liners galore. Shuttle boat required to get ashore. A busy naval centre with several French Navy vessels to be seen. There was also a large marina which also was busy.

The good things first:
+ the boat tour (we took the yellow boat) offers a great possibility to visit the military harbour and see some historical spots from the sea side
+ the tour guides are informative and fun but in french language only
+ the tour lasts one hour which is short while enough

What you should bear in mind:
- tour is a bit expensive (14€ for adults)
- the boat will be packed with people. If you want to gather a good place come early
- count on waves which will make the tour a bit bumpy (in case you easily get sea sick)

A nice stop in you Mediterranean cruise -Toulon - France .
They have created a smart idea to lead you to the down town .. They planted blue tiles all the way .. you keep stepping on until you are in the heart of Sete with no need to follow any maps .

Lovely long walk along the marina, lined with bars and restaurants and close to ferry embarkments and the Port of Toulon.

Stopped here as part of our cruise. Has many cafe's and restaurants and a market. Watch out for pick pockets though! Someone tried to unzip our bag!

This is a busy harbor, with every type of boat. Military, cruise, ferry, fishing, and sailing like us. There are some excellent restaurants as well.

Visited a few times, Rade de Toulon is pretty functional. Lots of harbour side eateries are ok for lunch and more expensive in the evening. France's navy arsenal is based here and the bigger cruise ships also dock for a night whilst cruising the Med. Liners are also present for the nightly (and daily in summer) trips to Corsica and Sardinia with or without your car. Nearby is Toulons old town to wander round and the large food market every morning except Monday (Course Lafayette).
I enjoy the blue boat rides over to St Mandrier etc. Use interchangable boat/bus tickets (10 euros for 10trips) or buy single fares at 2euros. If there's 3 to 5 of you get a ten ride pass between you and head onto a boat. St Mandrier is a 15 minute ride and worth a coffee, beer or eats on the promenade and a wander. Its quite pretty but a bit run down. The drab looking but tastey Creperie Roy D'ys has good food. You can drive the long way round or enjoy the cheap ferry and have a drink.
