Situated on the Mediterranean coast and a mere 68 kilometres from Marseilles as well an hour�s drive away from St Tropez, Toulon offers the best of all worlds.
Toulon is the site of France�s major naval base offering a delightful harbour awash with handsome sailors and history. Its perimeter is met by forts and hills that make up the countryside best explored from within an open-topped car (if you have one!)
The harbour in Toulon is packed with cafes and tour opportunities and in general offers a lively ambiance and one that proves very popular with each influx of visitors. Choose between boat rides of the Rade de Toulon, the surrounding islands as well as the yacht harbour. Similar to Marseille, over the years there has been considerable immigration from North Africa into Toulon which adds a different dimension to the atmosphere of the city.
You can�t travel too far in Toulon without stumbling upon a charming square. Full of nooks and corners to pass the time enjoying a snack, you can also be guaranteed of excellent �people-watching� material.
Toulon�s Old Town or �veille Ville� has much to offer the sight seeing tourist. Covering a large expanse of territory, the Old Town offers a charming Provence atmosphere with ample supplies of cafes, squares and interesting old buildings. In addition, the Old Town has a cosmopolitan feel about it with the enticing aromas of multi-national cuisine tempting you as you innocently pass by.
A popular family attraction in Toulon is the Musee de la Marine. Tracing back the history of local shipping through the years, this museum is said to be one of the more interesting of the museums on offer in the town.
When the sight seeing becomes too much of a burden for the children, do not fear because there is salvation! The Place d�Armes recreational feature offers family fun and entertainment away from the busy town centre. A good place to relax and recharge those batteries, this gem of a resort is one to have on the back-burner, ready for utilization.
The beaches in and around Toulons are sumptuous and always within a stone�s throw away in the case of a hot summer�s day. The Plage du Mourillon beach is situated on the periphery of the city centre as well as the Plage Notre Dame which is too on the outskirts of the city and receives about 275 days of glorious sunshine a year! The old fortress on the Plage du Mourillon (by the way) dates back to 1514 and makes for interesting beach photographs!
Lovers of all things old and interesting, should head over to the Musee de Vieux Toulon. This is the place to visit to discover the story of Toulon and how it has evolved over the years from as far back as Medieval times. The Cathedrale St Marie Major standing large and proud in Old Toulon, offers 11th and 12th century Romanesque architect as well as Gothic nave and eighteenth century facade.
Adored for its luscious sandy beaches, palm tree adorned landscape and it�s glorious sunshine, Hyeres is a must to visit! Just fifteen kilometres away from Toulon, Hyeres is situated upon the most southern part of the delectable Provence region.
A holiday location that is famed for attracting celebrities, Hyeres offers a wealth of activities here and much more strenuous than people watching. Take your pick from an array of water and boating sports as well as horse riding, karting and tennis. For those night owls among Hyeres visitors why not enjoy a hand or two of Blackjack in the local casino as well as a spot of night-clubbing.
The Cote d�Azure
On the doorstep of Toulon, the glittering French Riviera never falls short of a warm welcome to its visitors. The resort of your dreams, the vast deluxe hotels and their private beaches offer promises of a better life.
The Cote d�Azure is much more than luxurious sandy beaches, elegant boutiques and miniature dogs, as you will find out taking a journey across its breadth from Hyeres to Menton.
Stretching from the Alps to the Camargue and encompassing the Gorges du Verdon canyon, Provence offers atmospheric hilltop villages, busy cities and skiing resorts amongst much much more.
In the picturesque laid back �midi� (another name for Provence), artists like Van Gogh and Cezanne have continued to clamber here, canvass laden, to enjoy the lifestyle as well producing a beautiful painting. Who, what or where can beat Aix-en-Provence, Arles and Avignon for cultural delights and holiday promise? You would need to travel a long way.
