The history of Toulon, situated in the roads that are often considered as being Europe’s most beautiful roads, is for ever linked to the history of the Mediterranean Sea and the French Marine. The national marine museum is a beautiful example of this history. Boat trips are organised here, to visit the roads, the military boats on the quays and the fortifications.
The old town of Toulon is characterised by its privileged geographical location between the sea and the mountains, which has enabled it to develop rapidly thanks to its military and commercial port dating back to the old regime and located in a superb natural harbour. Nestled in the Var, about twenty minutes by car from Marseille, the city has thrived in a remarkable tourist atmosphere since its reconstruction in 1980, after it was destroyed by heavy bombardments during the Second World War.
If you are planning to spend your holidays on the French Riviera, a short detour to Toulon will be a good idea. Rich in activities and entertainment of all kinds, the city attracts many visitors every year, whether they are looking for sports activities or simply passionate about history.
