At (542m) Mont Faron dominates the city of Toulon in the north; from Super-Toulon a cableway 1,437m long (boulevard Amiral-Vence, departs every 10 minutes; closed Mondays) goes up to the Mémorial du Faron and the Tour Beaumont (493m). Another route to take up the hill is a very rewarding but narrow, steep and winding road which starts in the west and climbs up past the Fort du St.Antoine to the Musée Mémorial du Débarquement en Provence and descends on the east side. The military building contains a collection and documentation about the landing of the Allied forces from August 15, 1944. From the roof of the fort (orientation table, telescope) there is a superb panorama of the city, the port and mountains rising all round. On the plateau at the summit (which is charming because of its great variety of flowers), there is also a small zoological garden. Open 1400hrs - sunset.Read more
