Introduction

Toulon, France

Join the jet set in France’s Côte ’Azur on an MSC Mediterranean cruise holiday.
Toulon is a charming city in southern France with a recently restored old town, cute narrow streets, small squares and many fountains. Stepping ashore, you will love the fantastic Provencal market which takes Toulon is also ideally placed for day trips out into this most chic of regions.

Allow us to whisk you away to Aix-en-Provence, the capital of Provence, with its historic monuments, elegant squares, many fountains and home to a renowned international music festival. Don’t be surprised if you see a Hollywood A-lister stroll past with a baguette, and be sure to spend a moment watching the beautiful people walking by in one the many cafés along the Cours Mirabeau.

Nearby Cassis has an ultra-pretty fishing port with harbour-side cafés and shaded streets that make for an idyllic day out. Start with a divine local ice cream and then take a stroll around town, stopping at the open-air artists’ market to maybe pick up a Provencal watercolour or two.

The Provence coast is home to many lovely medieval villages and just outside Toulon lies Hyères, a historic town with a medieval quarter whose palm-lined streets and quaint charm offers a glimpse of picture-postcard France. Bandol meanwhile has an interesting literary heritage (it was holiday home to the writers Aldous Huxley and Marcel Pagnol), and has wines that are off the scale.

Eastwards is the billionaires’ playground of St. Tropez, known as ‘St Trop’ to the locals. A popular holiday destination since the 1950s, second home to movie stars and glittering jet set crowd; it’s always fun to look at the jaw-dropping super yachts that typically fill its harbour. None of them looks quite as good as your MSC cruise liner though, of course.

    Un charme discret et légèrement snob
    Un charme discret et légèrement snob

    Des vacances dans le sud de la France vous emmèneront au paradis. Ce jardin d’Éden réunit les Préalpes aux sommets enneigés et les collines qui sont au pied de la montagne qui déclinent jusqu’à la mer à l’est et arrivent jusqu’au Rhône à l’ouest.


    L’arrière-pays côtier se caractérise par une série changeante de baies à l’aspect presque géométrique qui cèdent parfois le pas à des agglomérats de rochers émergeants de la mer et à des criques étroites et profondes semblables à des fjords norvégiens en miniature, les calanques. Tous ces éléments seraient cependant insignifiants sans cette magique lumière méditerranéenne. Parfaite au printemps et en automne, elle est à la fois légère et vivante, conférant à chaque paysage le maximum de couleurs et de contrastes avec des reflets éblouissants. Une croisière dans le sud de la France représente une belle opportunité de visiter Nice, la capitale de la Riviera : un ensemble vibrant et intrigant d’influence italienne, splendeur Belle Époque décadente et art excellent.

    À l’est de la ville, la Corniche Inférieur relie les pittoresques stations balnéaires de Villefranche-sur-Mer, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat et Beaulieu-sur-Mer ; la Moyenne Corniche et la Grande Corniche offrent les vues panoramiques les plus spectaculaires d’Europe et amènent au village perché d’Èze et à la minuscule Principauté de Monaco. Les plus belles plages se trouvent dans la partie occidentale de la Riviera, à Juan-les-Pins et à Cannes, ville vivante connue pour les magasins de luxe et le festival du cinéma.
