The French city of Toulon lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast in the south of France. It is a major French naval base and consequently has a large military harbour which is home to the French Navy aircraft carrier Charles De Gaulle and her battle group along with the rest of the French Mediterranean Fleet. Toulon's history has strong links with many industries including shipbuilding, wine making, armaments, paper, maps, shoes, electronic equipment and the manufacture of aeronautical equipment.
Toulon's Old Town is located between the port, the Boulevard de Strasbourg and the Cours Lafayette, and is characterised by narrow streets, fountains and small squares and is where the city's cathedral is located. Selling local produce every morning, the area is also home to the popular Provencal market. Unfortunately the area fell into disrepair during the 1980's and 1990's but fortunately many of the town's fountains and squares have since been restored which has attracted many new shops to open up.
The city's port has two ferry terminals and has good passenger facilities including cafes, vending machines, a snack bar, toilets and long stay and short stay car parking. Ferry services operating from the port depart to Ajaccio, Bastia, Ile Rousse and Civitavecchia.
The town of Porto Veccio is located on the island of Corsica and lies around 65 km to the east of Sartene and 25 km from Bonifacio. The town was built on the site of former salt marshes and is the reason why the region was not developed sooner because the marshes were infested with mosquitoes and malaria until to 20th century. However, during the 20th century the marshes were drained which enabled the town to develop into the resort that is visible today. Despite this relatively recent development, there was a citadel located on a hill that dates back to the 16th century, when the Genoese ruled Corsica, and today forms one part of the current town, with the other part being the town's marina. The picturesque marina has many cafes and restaurants to enjoy and is a great place to stroll through and spend a summer's evening relaxing with friends and family. Located within the citadel are the original defences and ramparts, around the Place de la Republique, and a number of charming old buildings that line narrow streets and squares.
