Toulon On a Budget
Toulon Toulon, France
Located between Marseille and Nice, Toulon is in the western portion of the French Riviera and in the southeast of Provence. It's economy is heavily reliant on a French naval base in the area. This base is responsible for the creation of thousands of jobs. The city is also a significant tourist destination, with over 150,000 visitors every year.

It's a wonderful year around destination and has a climate similar to that found elsewhere in the south of France. The summers can be quite hot and there are infrequent but sudden thunderstorms. The rainiest season is likely to be fall, when storms are more frequent. Winters are drier and cool, but rarely below freezing.
The city's old town dates back to the Middle Ages. There are many small streets that are fun to wander through. Interesting wider streets include Algiers and Lafayette Streets where you'll find many shops. They do get crowded on Saturdays. Important sights in the old town area include the monumental clock, Tour de l'horloge, Saint Francois de Paule church, Saint Marie de la Seds Cathedral, the traditional markets along Cours Lafayette, and Place Puget.

The new town is where you'll find most of the city's museums. Some sights in the New Town area worth visiting are the Navy Museum, the Museum of Tour Royale, the Boat-Museum, and the municipal library. South of the Mourillon quarter you'll find a few decent beaches but do expect them to be crowded, particularly during the summer months. Also take a ride on the cable car which runs to the Mont-Faron Hill.

Popular parks in the city are the Frederic Mistral Garden where you'll likely see young couples having their wedding photos made and Alexandre the 1st Garden where there are frequent concerts on Sundays, particularly during the summer months.
The city is split into a historic old town and a new town. The old town area has many of the historic buildings, impressive architecture, and narrow, wandering streets. It is north of the harbor and is pleasant to walk around. The harbor area also features a promenade that is lined with souvenir shops, bars, and restaurants specializing in fresh seafood. The new town is north of the old town and has many of the city's museums.

Other neighborhoods include Le Mourillon which is a small seaside area to the east of Toulon near the harbour. Mount Faron climbs 584 meters and can be reached by cable car or a road that ascends from the west side and descends on the east. At the top there is a memorial that is dedicated to the 1944 Allied landing in Provence and the liberation of Toulon.

Many people enjoy going to the beach in Toulon, so they can get crowded when the weather is nice. Several of the nearby small towns have nice beaches. Examples include Les Sablettes in La Seyne sur Mer, L'Argeniere in the town of La Londe-les-Maures, and La Capte near Hyeres.
