Toulon may revel in its military heritage, but it is a popular cruise stop in the western Mediterranean, perhaps most noteworthy for its historic centre with its quaint narrow streets, small squares and many fountains. The old town of Toulon is easily reached from the port and is home to the popular Provençal market which takes place every morning on the Cours Lafayette, and features local products. For a spectacular view of the harbour, take the cable car up Mount Faron at the top of which you'll find a memorial dedicated to the 1944 Allied landings in Provence and the liberation of Toulon, or pop on over to Le Mourillon, a small seaside neighborhood at the entrance of the harbour with its 16th century Fort Saint Louis and sheltered sandy beaches.
