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.

    Francia

    Un fascino discreto e un po’ snob
    Un fascino discreto e un po’ snob

    Una vacanza nel sud della Francia vi porterà in paradiso. Questo giardino dell’Eden raccoglie in sé le Prealpi dai picchi innevati e le colline pedemontane che a est declinano fino al mare e a ovest arrivano quasi al Rodano.


    La zona costiera è caratterizzata da una serie mutevole di baie d’aspetto quasi geometrico, che a volte cedono il passo ad agglomerati di scogli affioranti dal mare e a insenature strette e profonde simili a fiordi norvegesi in miniatura, le calanques. Tutti questi elementi, però, sarebbero insignificanti senza quella particolare luce mediterranea, magica in primavera e autunno, al tempo stesso tenue e vivace, che conferisce a ogni paesaggio il massimo del colore e del contrasto con qualche riflesso abbagliante. Una crociera nel sud della Francia è una buona opportunità di visitare la “capitale” della Riviera, Nizza: un insieme vitale e suggestivo di influenza italiana, decadente splendore Belle Époque e arte eccellente.

    A est la Corniche Inférieure collega i pittoreschi paesini di Villefranche, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat e Beaulieu; la Moyenne Corniche e la Grande Corniche offrono alcuni degli scorci panoramici più spettacolari d’Europa e portano a Èze e al minuscolo Principato di Monaco. Le spiagge più belle sono nella parte occidentale della Riviera, a Juan-les-Pins e a Cannes, cittadina vivace, famosa per i negozi delle grandi firme e il festival del cinema.
