In the west there are the Calanques with the highest cliffs of Europe and their summit of the 394 m high Cap Canaille. To the east there is the Gulf of Amour with its fine sandy beach and many jetties.
The city itself is blessed with many cafes and restaurants and we stumbled across a street festival that was organized with a lot of love and commitment.
Among all these people we met two ladies who told us something about the oldest cinema in the world, the "Eden Theater". Here the Lumière's brothers showed their first movie: «Entrée d'un train en gare de la Ciotat» . Of course this movie was also shot in Ciotat.
