Toronto is very much a modern city, but for what it lacks in historic sites it more than makes up for in modern experiences. See the city from its prized vantage point at the CN Tower, climb the sculptural staircase at the Gallery of Ontario or wander the Gothic Revival style house of Casa Loma Castle.
In addition to the landmarks, Toronto is a city active with events. From sold-out hockey games to symphony concerts and a rotating calendar of festivals, the city rarely witnesses a dull moment. Of all of the events, the Toronto International Film Festival is the most famous. Taking place in September, the festival is usually attended by over 250,000 people and screens over 300 films from 59 countries.
But Toronto is no stranger to multiculturalism. Take a look at the cuisine on offer and you'll realise just how diverse this city is. From Chinatown to Little Italy, Greektown and burrows home to Portuguese and Jamaican communities, it's more than possible to eat your way around the world in Toronto, and the locals often do.
While the city is a hive for activity, there are other parts of Toronto that offer solace from the colourful streets. Take a leaf out of a local's book and take a break at the beach, wander the waterfront or browse the Ontario countryside which is littered with spas and sunny spots.
