Toulon is a medium-sized port city in the heart of the French Riviera. Visitors are drawn to its laid back atmosphere, but this is more than just a place to top up your tan. History enthusiasts will take pleasure in getting to know the city centre, which dates back to the Middle Ages.
It's here that you will find Toulon Cathedral, the centrepiece of the city. This church dates back to the 11th century and showcases classical French architecture from that time. It's also worth visiting the Church Saint-François-de-Paule, an example of Baroque architecture from the 18th century.
While in the historic centre of Toulon, find your way to the harbour and promenade where you can enjoy a fresh seafood dinner in the Mediterranean sun. Enjoy the delicious local fare while gazing out towards the fishing boats stationed in the dock.
With your car hire from Hyeres Airport, be sure to drive to the top of Mont-Faron Hill. From this vantage point, 500m above the main city, you can take photographs of the whole of Toulon. Near the summit you'll find a city zoo where you can spot animals such as wild cats and monkeys.
