Poised between the sea and the mountains, Toulon is stunningly located on one of the most beautiful harbours in Europe, with unspoiled creeks, and a chain of limestone mountain ranges, including Mount Faron, which is accessible by cable-car. It is still France's first military port, yet Toulon doesn't seem like a garrison town. It is steeped in an authentic Mediterranean character and exploring its market and restored historic centre is a delightful occupation. Don't miss the Mourillon district, rich in bistros and restaurants.
