Are you docking in Toulon or La Seyne-sur-Mer? Two of our cruises listed Toulon but both actually docked in La Seyne-sur-Mer. There is a ferry that takes you from La Seyne to Toulon for a nominal fee.

If you spend the day in Toulon, there is the Cours Lafayette market. We also enjoyed the cable car up to Mont Faron - gorgeous views overlooking the Côte d’Azur. There is a little tourist train that runs from Toulon’s port to places of interest about town.

On subsequent visits, we have enjoyed Cassis and Aix-en-Provence - both doable from Toulon.

We ended up in "Toulon" because of a last-minute switch from Corsica, so we had nothing booked.  We actually docked in La Seyne and negotiated with a taxi driver for an all-day trip to Aix.  It was no more expensive than a ship's excursion for 2 would have cost, and we were able to do exactly what we wanted.
