Toulon Shore Excursion with a Local Guide
The historic capital of Provence, hometown of Cezanne, Zola and Darius Milhaud, is the headlight of the South.
Ancient and young at the same time, the very much alive old town offers the best opportunity to experience the "French way of life", as well as all the wonders a city founded more than 2000 years ago can hold.
The Mazarin district will give you the opportunity to discover the best example of the "Grand siècle" architecture, a time when France dominated Europe.
The painter Cezanne was so fond of his city that he never had the courage to leave, so throughout his entire life he crisscross the roads around the Sainte-Victory mountain, the same ones you will drive through to enjoy numerous photo ops.

Although we started off late (our fault) we had a wonderful fun filled day with Sandy. She was engaging and informative about her quaint little town (Aix de Provence) pointing out points of interest only a local would know. We had a lovely lunch by the sea in Cassis and because the weather was rainy, we passed on Les Castellet and went to a private wine tasting - it was incredible ! Sandy was great and we would recommend her to anyone visiting the area.
