Frejus is located in the Var department of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur in south-eastern France. A favoured destination for trade, it was founded by Julius Cæsar in the year 49 B.C. and neighbours Saint-Raphaël, with these two communes effectively forming one town. It now reflects an expansive town with distinguished Roman ruins and is a place rich in art and history, a must when visiting Provence.
Frejus was neglected until 990 mainly due to wars and the port silting up. However, around that time, Bishop Riculphe bought the town helping to return it some of its stature, but continued periods of destruction meant Frejus underwent many more rebuilding efforts. Now with its port and ancient ruins, the town personifies natural beauty and is a bona fide highlight of the Var department. It is a place best sampled when crowd levels are low.
