Travel guide - Toronto
It’s the world’s most cosmopolitan city. With all the foreigners who come to work here, one out of every two Toronto residents is not Canadian, and more than 140 languages are spoken here daily. The city is a hub of cultural exchange. From the CN Tower to Toronto Islands, Ontario’s capital is a perfect compromise between dynamic metropolis and relaxing nature. To begin your stay in Toronto, dare to view the heights at the CN Tower. At 553 metres high, it’s one of the seven wonders of the modern world. Here, you can enjoy a 360-degree panorama of the city. And if you're brave enough, dare to take a walk outside, at the very top of the tower!
Not far away, several iconic locations welcome you to enjoy the numerous sporting events that set Toronto alight. For basketball and NBA, visit the Air Canada Centre, home to the Toronto Raptors. And if you prefer baseball or football, buy a ticket for the Rogers Centre.
The city offers a wide variety of entertainment. Ripley's Aquarium and its underwater tunnel are a different way to discover the marine world. Discover the Broadway scene through plays and musicals staged in the Entertainment District. And for shopping sprees, the ideal place is the Eaton Center. Culture lovers will enjoy the Discovery District neighbourhood, where you’ll find Queen's Park and the Royal Ontario Museum. The neighbouring district, Baldwin Village, is home to the Art Gallery of Ontario.
Toronto also invites you to spend time in some very pleasant natural spaces. If you want to escape the city bustle, a few minutes will take you to Toronto Islands. Take time to walk, swim, or even take a boat trip. You can enjoy, in peace and quiet, a wonderful view of the city of Toronto.
From the Portugal Town district to Little India, Canada’s largest city lives to the rhythm of different cultures. Toronto today offers so many things to do, becoming a dynamic metropolis and a new cultural centre of Canada.
