If you want to visit Toulon from a cruise ship, you find that docking is actually at La Seyne sur Mer. A bit out of town, there isn’t a whole lot in the area except for ships, beaches and a bike rental. Since this isn’t a port I have visited before, I elected to take the Ferry at 0830. There weren’t all that many of us headed out that early. I think most people assumed that since it is Sunday, there was going to be absolutely nothing open before lunch.
A new port for me. It is lovely to find I had a couple of hours to explore the city without being overrun by either locals or tourists managing to walk into my frame just as I click the shutter.
Toulon has the history of long being a major French Naval Base.Which means the usual ancillary services.
It is still home to ships, training and the Maritime Museum (which opens at 1000).
Oh, and the cherries were terrific!
