TOULON (and La Seyne-Sur-Mer): If you are on a large ship, you will probably dock across the bay from Toulon at La Seyne-Sur-Mer. From that dock you exit the port and turn right (west) to get to the ferry (#8M) dock about 10 minutes away. It helps if you view the port area from the upper deck of the ship first, so that you can see where the ferry stops -- it is at Espace Marine in a somewhat bleak industrial area. Any local can show you the way. The ferry costs 2 euros each way, but is included in the day pass available at the Toulon tourist information office. If you are on a smaller ship, you may dock southeast of Toulon's center, just a 10 minutes walk away from the tourist information office. Whichever dock, I suggest that you first go to the Toulon tourist information office at Place Louis Blanc. They have all the information and maps that you will need to enjoy your day. They also sell the 4 euro transit pass, which is good for all buses and ferries in the area. Just outside the office is an enjoyable street market that extends for several hundred meters up the hill. There is a pleasant walking tour of Toulon on the tourist map, or you can hop on a bus #3 or #23 to go to the attractive beaches and parks of the Mourillon district southeast of town. Alternately, you can enjoy the beach and park at Sablettes, south of La Seyne-Sur-Mer. From Toulon ferry # 18M (or less enjoyable bus #18) goes there. Bus #18 passes a few blocks west of the La Seyne-Sur-Mer cruise dock on its way north to Toulon or south to Sablettes. For those who want to see Marseille rather than Toulon, bus #23 and bus #3 go from near the waterfront area up the hill to the train station (Gare Toulon) for the ride to Marseille's St. Charles train station. Check the internet for prices and schedules. Read Less

We saw some lovely scenery on the comfortable bus but were not blown away by Toulon. Much of the city was built up after the war so the building were drab except for the lovely Housemen buildings in the town centre. My review may be ... Read More
We saw some lovely scenery on the comfortable bus but were not blown away by Toulon. Much of the city was built up after the war so the building were drab except for the lovely Housemen buildings in the town centre. My review may be unfair because we were on the bus and we didn't get the true feel of the town by walking around. Read Less

We enjoyed our free time in Toulon, walking on our own to the market and the Christmas market that was set up in a city square within walking distance of the ship.

We took a ship tour to Cassis.. it was really good, We went by bus to the top of the mountain and then into town. The weather was mixed but we enjoyed this sweet port and their delicious bakeries!
