You must buy the tickets at the Tourism office in the town . Then you ride the bus up to the cable car location. We loved the views from the top and got some great pictures of all of the Navy ships in the harbor....More

Travel to and from the Telepherique is easy, using a frequent and reasonable bus service, and the journey up the mountain on the cable car is truly spectacular. Once there the walks and the views are good and you will normally find some liquid refreshment...More

Does its job! It wasn't running to the timetabled every ten minutes but there weren't enough users to require that. The top of Mount Faron is a pleasant stroll for an hour or so.

Cheap and an interesting ride to the top of the mountain. Good view of the town. The problem is there is not a lot else up there. A new museum is shortly to open so it will be worth the trip.
