Tips for Getting Along with Locals in La Ciotat

As with most places in France, unless you are feeling confident in your French speaking capabilities, it would be best to bring a pocket phrase book with you, as the locals have a reputation for being difficult to communicate with in English. You can find the local tourist information office at Boulevard Anatole France for all of the latest news regarding events and attractions. The Summer months of June to August are typically dry with gentle winds, and temperatures usually around 28°C. There is a train station roughly 10 minutes from the city centre which operates a regular service from Marseille and Toulon, making La Ciotat the ideal place to being your adventure across the south of France.
