Where to book in Toulon?
History and urbanism
Although it's between the sea and the mountains, Toulon definitely prioritises the sea. It’s been a stopover since the dawn of time: Ancient Greek ships, countless merchant ships, Louis XIV’s fleet after Vauban provided the city with impressive fortifications. Convicts, explorers and war – all have passed through here. Toulon paid a heavy price in the Second World War. The port had to be rebuilt. Today, Toulon hosts aircraft and helicopter carriers plus nuclear attack submarines, making it France’s primary sea defence base.
”Ville haute” or ”ville basse” (Lower or Upper Town) – you choose! The Haussmann-styled former is home to the opera house, built in 1862 and inspiration for Charles Garnier’s Paris version. The latter is livelier and more down-to-earth, and it seems to have stayed in the mediaeval era. You absolutely must visit the Quai de Cronstadt and the port. Classified as “20th century heritage”, the buildings in the Port-Marchand Quarter including the Caisse d’Epargne bank on Place de la Liberté are also worth a detour, before a well-earned rest in the bed we have ready for you.
Whether in Toulon for a family weekend or for business tourism, find out about the landings in Provence at the museum dedicated and opened by General de Gaulle himself in 1964. Admire the majestic gates to the Arsenal and the old Jesuit Seminary. Dream of the ocean at the Marine Museum. Escape 20,000 leagues under the sea with the Bathyscaphe FNRS 3.
There’s no shortage of events on the waterfront; your stay in Toulon is bound to coincide with one of them! From the shellfish festival to Fantaisies Toulonnaises, the International Maritime, Exploration and Environmental Film Festival, Jazz in Toulon and the Tall Ships Races, there’s something for everyone, all year round !
