Review Highlights

Driving up Mont Faron is a must for those seeking a thrill. Forget the Alps and other mountain drives.The drive up is long and scary but thankfully a one way road. Views are spectacular and well worth it. For those not risking the drive there...More

My wife and I had a short stop off in Toulon whilst on a TUI cruiser and enjoyed the visit. The views at the top are stunning although, in truth, there’s not that much to do at the top. Nevertheless, it’s well worth the effort.

The cable car is the only decent way to get here in Summer, but it is worth the maybe waiting time. We went on Saturday and that was just fine. The week can be busy traffic, Sundays there may be too many locals. Fantastic views,...More

This is a stunning place to visit. The views are quite frankly incredible and really worth a visit. You can drive up and that is worth the hassle.

Hiking and great views. It cost me approximately 12 euros for myself and my son to go up the mountain in the cable car.
