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.

    Diskretan i pomalo snobovski šarm
    Diskretan i pomalo snobovski šarm

    Odmor u južnoj Francuskoj oduševit će vas. Ovaj rajski vrt obuhvaća donje Alpe sa snježnim vrhovima i njihovo prigorje koje se na istoku spušta izravno u more, a na zapadu širi gotovo do Rhônea.


    Priobalna unutrašnjost sastoji se od niza strmih, šumovitih brda dok je obala promjenjivi niz geometrijskih zaljeva koji otvaraju put kaotičnim izdancima svjetlucavih stijena i dubokim, uskim usjeklinama poput minijaturnih fjordova – "calanques". Međutim, svi ti elementi ne bi značili ništa bez čarobnog mediteranskog svjetla. Tijekom proljeća i jeseni prikazuje se u najljepšem svjetlu, blage boje i izrazito bistro, kao da je neki stručnjak postavio osvjetljenje na svaki dio krajolika uz maksimalni raspon boja i uz najbolju kvalitetu slike, s minimalnim blještavilom. Krstarenje u južnu Francuskuizuzetna je prilika za izlet u glavni grad Rivijere, Nicu –živopisan i zanimljiv spoj utjecaja talijanske renesanse, raskoši razdoblja Belle Époque iprvoklasne umjetnosti.

    Istočno od gradaproteže se cesta koja s jedne strane gleda na visoke stijene dok na drugojgleda na padine prema moru, tzv. Corniche, čiji donji dio povezuje pitoreskneobalne gradove Villefranche,St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat i Beaulieu. Cestana takvoj uzvisini pruža jedanod najspektakularnijih obalnih doživljaja vožnje u Europi. Na navedenoj ruti visoko u brdima smjestilo se selo Èze asamo malo dalje u podnožju malena kneževina Monaco. Zapadnim dijelom regije dominiraju najbolje plaže – u blistavom Juan-les-Pinsu i u Cannesu, glamuroznom centru dizajnerske kupnje i filma.
