We took the "Petit Train" from the waterfront which took us all over the town. We visited the old town winding through the narrow streets which gave us an insight into life early on.
Stayed across Toulon bay so got the water bus into the city and spent time wandering around the old town.The street markets were amazing...busy,vibrant...lovely to sit and have a coffee and watch the world go by

Absolutely nothing to do here. It's not often that you can say that you can have a better time on the ship than at the port of call.... but this is it. Toulon, France is not the place you want to be. 14 cruises and I've finally found the worst place to visit.

The old city of Nice is absolutely worth of visit. The old narrow streets with numerous nice restaurants and art galleries take your time at least for a day. I can also warmly recommend the really nice marketplace on the "Cours Saleya" with lots of local specialities.
