An Exciting Place I have visited One of the most exciting places I have ever visited is Cannes. This is a city in southeast France and one of the best-known cities in French Riviera. Its history dates back to the second century BC when the Oxybii, a Lingurian tribe established a settlement there. In the tenth century, the city came under Saracens rule (Meller 145). The Saracens fortified the city by building a castle and two towers. In the eighteenth century, the French government took over. Under the French, the city served various purposes among them as a location for a military hospital during the Crimean War. Towards the end of the nineteenth century, several railways had been completed prompting the arrival of street cars (Meller 147).
