Probably the most popular city in Canada,Toronto is a diverse cultural destination that ishighly regarded for its museums, concerts, family entertainment, sportsstadiums and craft beers. Visit a gallery, taste aromatic craft beers, enjoyone of its many music festivals or explore Lake Ontario and the Toronto Islandsin this fun Canadian city.

Toronto has alwaysbeen a popular international destination. Since the British founded a colony inthe 18th century the immigrants have kept coming. Today, nearly three millionpeople live here, with more than 130 languages ​​and dialects spoken in thecity. Experience the multicultural diversity of the city in neighbourhoods likeChinatown, Greektown, Little Italy and Kensington Market.

Many attractions are within reach of the wellorganized public transport system in Toronto oryou can simply explore by foot; follow the PATH, the world largest undergroundshopping mall with 28 kilometres of underground passages and shops that rununderneath downtown Toronto.

Visit historic buildings and cultural exhibitionsin Yorkville and the Distillery District. Relax in High Park and TorontoBotanical Garden or try your courage in the 356-meter Edge Walk along thefacade of the CN Tower. Experience baseball and football games at the RogersCentre and get a photo with the Stanley Cup at the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Two other attractions not to be missed are theRoyal Ontario Museum with its beautiful architecture, Casa Loma and the ArtGallery of Ontario, where you can enjoy excellent art, both local andinternational. Rummage the fashion stores in the Toronto Eaton Centre or buyfresh food and curios on the St. Lawrence Market. If you’re travelling with thefamily, don’t miss the Toronto Zoo and Canada's Wonderland, which are perfectfor outings with the kids.

Winters in Toronto aretypically cold, like most of Canada, and while the summers can sometimes getvery hot, they’re usually mild and pleasant – perfect for a little stroll inthe park. Throughout the year, the Harbourfront Centre organizes culturalevents including SING!, Toronto VocalArts Festival and the Caribbean carnival.

If you’re in Canada then it’d be almost criminalnot to make the 90-minute trip to NiagaraFalls. Take a trip on Yonge Street, one of the longest roads in theworld that runs past Lake Ontario, through the Canadian wilderness, stretchingonto Lake Simcoe.

Each year 21 million people visit the city and mostcountries run direct flights to Toronto International Airport. The location ofthe city on Lake Ontario, one of the Great Lakes, along with its culturaldiversity, only goes a short way to explaining why Toronto is such a populardestination – if you really want to know, you’d better book your own triptoday.

As a single visitor, l felt safe going out and felt really glad that l didn't need to have someone with me. Although it was really nice to have a good friend take me to see Niagra Falls. I will be returning.

A great city, plenty to see and do. Locals are very friendly and helpful. Transportation can be quite restrictive if parts of the Streetcar network are out of action but this is rare.

It's a great city, a whole series of interlocking neighbourhoods, all slightly different. Very walkable. Lots of unique entertainment, from the great old band venues like the Horseshoe, to lovely unique theatre venues,great cinema and in the summer,
