Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Toulon

Although many of the locals will speak English to a certain degree, you may find it easier to get by with a little understanding of the language, so be sure to pack your pocket phrase book. The city has a dry climate, and the Summer months of June to August can see temperatures rise as high as 34°C, so if you travel during these months bring some strong sun cream and carry bottled water. The city has good rail and bus transport links, and is just a short hop away from Marseille and Nice, making it the ideal place to begin your adventures further afield in the south of France. You can find the tourist information office at 12 Place Louis Blanc for detailed information on the latest events and attractions.
