Old town Toulon. Navy, tourists, hookers; mafia, it's got history. Those walls have got stories to tell.

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

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.

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
