Frejus holds a place in history as it was the first naval base in the Mediterranean for the Romans back in the first century BC.
The ancient Roman port town of Frejus borders the resort town of Saint Raphael on that gorgeous red rock stretch of coast between Cannes and Saint Tropez. The harbour still has an ancient tower that enabled protection of the fleet and the town itself is filled with Roman ruins and artefacts. An impressive 10,000 seater amphitheatre still hosts events in the 21st century - bullfighting and theatre are amongst the spectacles that are featured. Roman walls, baths, gates and an aqueduct can also be explored by visitors. A fine Roman theatre hosts concerts during the summer.
Arts and culture are further represented in the town with plenty of decent shops and galleries. The port offers all things nautical from windsurfing to Scuba diving, and there are several beaches along the seven mile long coastline.
