The Coastal Culture
From the Cours Louis Blanc market in the center of La Seyne, a coastal road leads to the Promenade Jean Charcot. Along the way, visitors can spot Toulon’s naval ships resting in the base across the harbor. You can also dive deeper into La Seyne’s 500-year-old tradition of naval construction and maritime history at the 17th-century Balaguier Fort, a former gun tower turned museum. Crêperie Les Deux Frères
on the Promenade Charcot shows off views of another famous landmark sprouting from the sea: the Deux Frères twin rocks. From Les Sablettes, a 25-minute ferry ride drops you off in Toulon next to the Cours Lafayette market, one of the area’s largest. Toulon is best seen from above, so hop on the red cable car to Mont Faron, with sweeping panoramic vistas from the terrace of the Tour Beaumont memorial museum.
