Toronto: cosmopolitan Canada

Toronto is both the biggest and most cosmopolitan city in Canada. Coming here will give you a taste of a North American megalopolis with a multi-cultural twist.

Toronto, confidently cosmopolitan

If your trip to Canada includes visiting the country's biggest cities, then you certainly won't miss out Toronto, the most cosmopolitan of them all! Situated to the east, not far from Montreal, it's a great stop off point before you head to the prairies and central parts of Canada.

Spending time in Toronto will give you a taste of what Canada is about: a cultural mix that assumes its cosmopolitan structure and brings together different racial groups: Chinatown, the largest in North America, being a prime example. So as you explore the city, you'll find yourself 'crossing continents', be it in an educational, cultural or edible form!

CN Tower

A trip to Toronto would not be complete without seeing its star attraction, the CN Tower that boasts, by far, the best view of the city. With a giddy observation point at 447 metres high, it's not one for vertigo sufferers! Thrill seekers, however, will love it! If you prefer something a little less stomach churning, then there are plenty of museums, parks and gardens dotted around the city.

Plus there are lots of things to do close by

One of the great things about Toronto is its proximity to numerous amazing sites. The nearby Niagara Falls are a reason enough to continue your trip to Canada and you can always hop across the border - Chicago's not far away either!

Toronto's outskirts also have their fair share of attractions, notably Ontario's lakes, which make for superb walks and weekends with friends or family. It's true to say that you can find a bit of everything that Canada has to offer here, from snow to forests, animals, lakes and cosy evenings in a fire-lit chalet.
Finally, if traffic jams drive you crazy, do your best to work around peak times, which can be as chaotic as the city is cosmopolitan!
