We loved Toulon - a gorgeous little coastal town in the south of France. Walking around and taking in the charming sights, enjoying the market - and then stopping for a photo here with these guys in the lovely square. A wonderful day.

We chanced upon this statue and it is very amusing and well placed. They sit in front of a pool of water and are very realistic!

Great art; great photo op. Just make sure the metal seats are not too hot before you sit on them. You can bet on

Somewhere to take a photo not much else open or available in the square that this statue is in . Plenty of places for a drink or something within 5-10 minute walk .

Very realistic statuary right on down to the facial expressions of two men in a serious game of cards in the middle of the square

We had fun, playing and posing with these card playing gentlemen. Other tourists saw us having fun, and stopped to take pictures too. It was enjoyable, and something different than the usual “go stand in front of that & smile” type of travel photo. It’s...More

What a great idea, the perfect setting for digital photo experiences. A massive improvement on people covering themselves in colour and standing still!

It's my 3rd visit to the charming Toulon . The statue with two men playing cards and two free chairs. A nice spot to take a photo. Recommended
