The seaside town of La Ciotat is located in the south of France, east of Marseille. Famous for being home to the first ever film in the history of cinema, a fifty-second long film filmed by the Lumière brothers, the culture of La Ciotat makes it the ideal place for exploring. Hiring a car is a great way to discover this coastal town; with its stretch of beautiful sandy beaches and quaint markets and shops, there's plenty to do, to both relax and discover the wonderful settings of La Ciotat.
