Also two hours away, you'll find Toulon, the prefecture for the Var department, but you’ll need to reserve a full day to visit. A port city on the Mediterranean coast, it is home to a large naval base and a national maritime museum. Take the funicular to the top of Mont Faron and admire the most beautiful bay in Europe.
A landmark of Provencal heritage, in the heart of the old town, embellished and redeveloped, you can stroll along the market stalls of Le Cours Lafayette, which has been presenting its scents, colours and aromas every day since 1750. In a song entitled “Marché de Provence”, Toulon native Gilbert Bécaud sung about this market with typical Provencal overtones whose reputation has travelled far beyond the borders of France.
Other markets include those in Pont du Las, Saint du Var and Mourillon.
