With its ideal central position on the French Med coast, Toulon nestles between mountain and sea in what is considered the most beautiful, widest and bestsheltered bay in Europe protecting the port from prevailing winds and offering accessibility in all weather conditions, making Toulon the most reliable alternative in the French Med.

The port is very secure thanks to the presence of the French Navy and its full ISPS compliance. It benefits from excellent facilities able to accommodate the world's largest ships. Toulon offers a highstandard reception quality and a unique experience for cruise guests: all day long, multilingual reception staff provide tourist information and complimentary souvenirs, a Provencal mini-market also takes place inside the terminal. The highly qualified port community: pilots, tugs, stevedores, local agents and tour operators work in close partnership to offer quality services.

They can easily reach the promenade along the marina with its many restaurants and cafes, a main shopping-mall (100 boutiques), the old medieval quarter and its picturesque Provencal street market (the biggest one in Provence), its fountains, shady squares, chic quarter from Baron Haussmann including the impressive Opera, its museums and monuments.
  • La Seyne cruise terminal (Located the opposite side of the bay, in front of Toulon downtown) - A shuttle boat service allows to reach Toulon city centre by a scenic crossing through the bay (10 minutes). Thanks to its strategic position, Toulon, capital of the South of France's beautiful VAR PROVENCE region, offers a wide range of shore excursions: in brand name places such as St-Tropez, Aix-en-Provence or in some off-the-beaten track places including other must-see excursions such as Sanary, Le Castellet, Bormes-les-Mimosas, etc. With 90% of cruise guests welcomed in Var-Provence, Toulon is the leading port of the VAR PROVENCE CRUISE CLUB (a network of 10 ports in both Provence & the French Riviera.)
