Excursions from the port of Toulon

At the bottom of this page you’ll find an alphabetic listing of our most popular shore excursions from Toulon with images for easy reference. If you don’t see the tour you’re looking for please contact us! Customization is our specialty.

The MOST POPULAR destination from Toulon is Aix-en-Provence. Similar to Florence in its architecture and elegance, Aix is alive with many fountains, markets, shops, sunny terraces and real Provençal life.

▶︎ Note that Aix is a bit of a drive from Toulon, about 75 minutes without traffic. In summer figure a good 3 hours of travel time there and back out of your 8 hour touring day.

Our most popular day trip from Toulon is Aix-en-Provence & Cassis, which also gives you the opportunity to see the Calanques — the coastal inlets lined with sheer limestone cliffs. Cassis being a quaint fishing village, this excursion is a nice mix of contrasts.

PRETTY SEASIDE VILLAGES are abundant in this part of Provence. Cassis is very popular with tourists. For something more off-the-beaten path take a look at Sanary-sur-Mer, with its lively fish market, and the town of Bandol, with its sandy beaches flanked by restaurant terraces, GREAT FOR FAMILIES.

If you fancy going WINE TASTING there are two good regions:

  • the Bandol (very convenient from Toulon)
  • Mt. Sainte-Victoire (near Aix-en-Provence, along the Route Cézanne, where the Cézanne painted many famous works.)

For MEDIEVAL places there is Le Castellet, pretty as a postcard. Our tour of Le Castellet & Cassis is perfect if you want to visit small places.

For a GREAT MIX OF CONTRASTS with MINIMAL DRIVING, consider Toulon, Sanary-sur-Mer & Le Castellet. Many French citizens tell our guides they had no idea Toulon was so interesting! We consider it is one of the best-kept secrets of the French Riviera. The old town centre has lots of character and lots of interesting things to entertain the visitor. If you prefer less crowded places, Toulon is ideal.

Full day services last 8 hours.
