Canada’s economic capital and most diverse metropolis, Toronto is a melting pot of cultures and nationalities. Around half the population do not have English as their mother-tongue and the city boasts numerous multinational neighbourhoods, such as Little Italy, Little Portugal, Chinatown and Koreatown. During your stay, be sure to swing by Toronto’s historic Old Town where you can stop for lunch at St Lawrence Market (one of the world’s top food markets), tour the gothic Casa Loma and chill on the beaches of the Toronto Islands. Don’t leave without bracing the glass floor at the top of the 553-metre CN Tower, the tallest freestanding structure in the western hemisphere. For a day trip, the world famous Niagara Falls is just 90 minutes from Toronto.

Getting Round Toronto
Toronto is a large city, in order to explore it in detail you’ll need to use the clean and efficient public transport system. If you’re heading off on a self-drive holiday around Canada’s east coast, or bound for Niagara Falls, then extending your car hire for an extra day or two to cover your time in the city is a good value option, but beware of traffic congestion when driving in centre. For something a little easier, try the 3-line subway system, the bus or the streetcars. Toronto is the only city in Canada with streetcars, which are something of a novelty, but a reliable and fun way to get around the city.
When to Go to Toronto
While Canada as a whole can be subject to huge temperature variations, Toronto avoids the extremes due to its position on the edge of Lake Ontario, which moderates the local climate, keeping summers mild and winters relatively warm. In terms of events, some of the best times to visit Toronto is during Cherry Blossom season in May or for Toronto’s Festival of Beer which is held in late July.
