Our final port visit on the twelve day Mediterranean cruise took us to the soutern coast of France to the port city of Toulon. Our shore excursion involved a tour bus ride to Marseille

The John F. Kennedy Highway follows the natural coast offering lovely views of the islands off shore and the scenic land in this part of France..


The camera equipment used on this trip was the Canon 40D dSLR and Canon G12. Lenses consisted of a Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8, Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8, and for long distance shots, Canon 100-400mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM telephoto.

A courthouse in Toulon. We did not see a lot of the city as we left the city on our way to Aix En Provence More terranced fields in the countryside, viewed from the tour bus window as we passed. Curiously cropped trees line the street. La Rotonde Fountain.

Sightseeing walking tour around the city.

A natural hot water fountain (34 °C), covered in moss, dating back to the Romans. Plenty of sidewalk cafes for eating chocies to your liking. One of the many squares within the city.
Side streets for shopping.   The place d'Albertas Place d'Albertas hosts the annual Festival of Lyric Arts during summer time, a must-see event.
