Toronto, sitting on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario, is Canada's largest city, a cosmopolitan, clean, hip city to which immigrants – Germans, Italians, Chinese, Russians, Poles, Irish, Greeks – have flocked for centuries. This modern, buzzing city pays tribute to this diversity with distinct communities (Little Italy, Little Greece, Chinatown) fused cuisine and a plethora of cultural festivals such as the Toronto International Film Festival, Gay Pride Parade and the Caribana Festival.
Finding cheap flights to Toronto are just the starting point for savvy travellers. For picking up bargains and browsing, Yonge Street, Queen Street and the Church Wellesley Village (one of Canada’s most vibrant communities) are the places to go.
The Royal Ontario Museum, renovated and expanded under Daniel Libeskind’s guidance, is a fascinating place. It has more than six million artifacts. The Art Gallery of Ontario, the tenth-largest art museum in North America, has more than 40,000 works in its collection, from 100 AD to present day.
When the city gets too busy, Dundas Square or the Beaches offer a respite. A ten-minute ferry journey from the Harbourfront will deliver you to the Toronto Islands, full of lakeside charm.
