Stopover in Toulon Provence Méditerranée

The Toulon Provence Méditerranée metropolitan area welcomes you to the heart of what Vauban, the great military architect during the reign of Louis XIV, long ago described as one of the finest bays on the Mediterranean. There are so many things to see during your time on shore.

By land or sea, from family-friendly beaches to unspoiled creeks hidden away along the coastal path by way of mountains looking out over the sea, this landscape is outstanding in more ways than one. This is a land of history that has lovingly preserved the heritage of its forts and citadels.  It is also firmly rooted in the present, with a rich and varied range of cultural resources including a number of prestigious arts centres such as the Villa Tamaris and the Villa Noailles and modern facilities such as the Théâtre Liberté, opened in 2011. Above all, this is a great place to live, with an enviable climate and lifestyle.

To help you choose the kind of stopover best suited to your interests, we have picked out a selection of 17 itineraries. Culture, relaxation or shopping? The choice is yours!

The guide is a mine of useful information on how to get about from your port of call (on foot, by bus or via the port shuttles operated by Mistral, the TPM public transport authority). We hope the time you spend ashore here will make you want to come back to this magnificent region and really make the most of everything that Toulon Provence Méditerranée has to offer.
