La Ciotat owns 3 Flowers in the Ville Fleurie, Flowery City label.
The Regional Tourism Commitee awards the efforts undertaken by cities to improve their living environment and develop their attractiveness.
The climate changes along with the concern for better environment protections are taken into account in the flowery development of cities…and this is the challenge to take in order to reach the third flower in the Ville Fleurie contest.
La Ciotat is therefore getting more and more enjoyable to live in and a lot more welcoming to visitors.
Every year, the jury evaluates the work of the participating cities according to the two main criteria below:
• The botanical frame of urban areas: trees, shrubs and the flowering of cities (55% of the total score)
• The city’s living conditions: the respect of the environment, the beautification of the urban development and the flowering actions taken by the city and its citizens (45% of the total score)
