Guided Tour in Toulon: Port & Old City

Guided Tour in Toulon: Port & Old City

Toulon is the capital of Var. Its importance as a central port city for the Mediterranean coast was known back in the Roman Empire. Toulon is a permanent base for the French Navy.

Toulon also served Napoleon as the port from which he embarked on his journey to Egypt. Josephine climbed the Royal Tower and waved goodbye to her husband to make sure he did indeed leave.

We will walk along the port dock, discuss the history of the city, look at the famous statues in front of the town hall. We will then cut into the old city and famous Provencal market and explore some of the local specialties. We will continue into the heart of the old city, looking at houses, fountains, telling stories, and presenting the previously vibrant figures of Toulon.

Cruise ship passenger? My pleasure to meet you at the terminal or as you get off your tender boat. Intimate small groups with no audio guiding system. I speak to you :-) You walk with me, not behind me ;-)
