Toronto, found along the North-west shore of Lake Ontario, is the biggest city in Canada and will please all types of visitor. Toronto is a very diverse place made up of a cornucopia of different cultures.
Upon exploration of the city you will find the colourful mix of a Chinatown, Little Italy, Gerrard India Bazaar and a Little Portugal. In these districts you’ll see unique shops and great restaurants. The Eaton Centre is a huge shopping mall with over 320 shops, 17 cinemas and a gigantic glass roof.
Be sure to visit and marvel at the CN Tower which is the world’s tallest free-standing building. The famous Toronto SkyDome has an incredible retractable roof and plays host to baseball games if you fancy a cracking day of sports events.
Since the culture is so diverse, the food of Toronto follows suit and the multitude of fine restaurants will leave you spoilt for choice. The Toronto metro system is an easy way to get around the city so you’ll never be in danger of getting lost.
What To Do
Virgin travellers visiting the largest city in Canada will not be short of ideas for how to spend their well earned time. The CN Tower, which is the tallest free-standing building in the world, is a good place to start, but visit the various boroughs of the city to get a real feel for its multicultural flavour. The Eaton Centre is a shopping must-see and the SkyDome a necessity for Virgin sport fans.
Where To Eat
With a sizzling cultural scene, Toronto naturally has more than its fair share of great restaurants. Virgin holidaymakers can try Buca for Italian dishes, or opt for Caplansky's for various meat creations. Why not be adventurous and go to Conviction – all the staff are former felons making a new start in the culinary world. Local Kitchen and Wine Bar is, as the name suggests, a good place for local food.
