Fodor's Expert Review Mount Faron

Toulon Zoo/Aquarium

Rising 1,900 feet above the town, with panoramic views over Toulon, the surrounding countryside, and the sea, Mount Faron can be reached by the circular Route du Faron in either direction or in six minutes by cable car from Boulevard Admiral Jean-Vence. At the top, the World War II memorial, which commemorates the mountain fort's vital role in the Provence débarquement of August 1944 and the liberation of Toulon, is undergoing renovation until 2017, but you can visit a small zoo specializing in endangered wild cats, and there are two cafés for refreshments.
