A two-day break:
The Old Town epitomises Toulon. This historic hub located between the port is a pedestrianised area made up of narrow streets, quaint fountains and small squares. As one of the largest harbours in Europe, Toulon Harbour is considered one of the best natural quays on the Mediterranean and is well worth visiting. For shoppers, Space Mayol, a contemporary shopping centre situated to the south-east of the old town, offers lots of variety.
A week-long stay:
The New Town, also referred to as Haute Ville (High Town), includes the Place de la liberté - one of the town’s main squares - and the Opera House, and reflects another beautiful segment of the city. There are museums aplenty, with the Navy and Boat museums hosting collections which help visitors understand the history of the area. The once small fishing village, Le Mourillon, is also a favourite with locals and tourists alike. Choose the Hotel Campanile LE HAVRE NORD - Montivilliers or the Campanile hotel LE HAVRE EST - Gonfreville to look after you during your stay.
A family holiday:
Alexandre the 1st Garden is a green area with entertainment for young children, as is Mont Faron Zoo. The Zoo Fauverie du Faron is more specialised, as it breeds mainly big cats, and for this reason is considered a fascinating place. Toulon has many beaches that were constructed in the 50s in a bid to boost tourism, and Les Sablettes in la Seyne sur Mer and La Capte are recommended when staying at Campanile Toulon Hotel. This beach is all sand without the seaweed, and is well worth the 15km trip out of the city.
