The City of Toulon : An Introduction
Situated in the Provence region, under the protection of Mont Feron at the southern end of the French Alps and bordered by the Cote d’Azzure of the Mediterranean sea, Toulon is a city approximately the size of Cork.
There’s more than a great climate to tempt visitors to Toulon. Nestled between a mountain range and a large bay, there is plenty to see and do in this small industrial port city.
There is an old town dating back to the Middle Ages, a harbour area with shops and restaurants and a new town home to the main square (Place de la Liberte). There are several beaches to choose from, daily markets and a cable car that will take you to the top of Mount Faron, overlooking Toulon.
Toulon is steeped in literature and art, probably most famously known as the location of the infamous prison,the”Bagne of Toulon” in Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables.
