A vibrant metropolis with fantastic art and culture and a wondrous waterfront, Toronto is a magic destination to explore. Reach the top of the seventh modern wonder of the world, the CN Tower, then venture to every corner of the city.
With restaurants and cafes on every street, Toronto is home to Greek town, China town and Little Italy. Visit the lively Dundas Square, reminiscent of Times Square, in the Downtown district. Or wander around the beautiful Edwards Gardens – but watch out for chipmunks. Book flights to Toronto and get yourself to one of the coolest neighbourhoods in Toronto, West Queen West, for gourmet dining, cool art galleries, boutiques and nightlife. Take in the splendour of Castle Loma, gaze at the artefacts of the Royal Ontario Museum or marvel at the blend of art and architecture at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Toronto’s underground PATH network is a great way to get about in winter, while the thriving pubs, overflowing patios and inviting green spaces are abuzz in the summer.
