Holidays to Toronto

Toronto, Canada's largest city is often described as the world's most multicultural city and when you start to unravel its secrets, you will easily understand why. These strong immigrant communities are in evidence throughout this diverse metropolis and make up part of its character. There are a million and one things to do in the city and it is impossible to cover everything in one trip. However, here a few essentials that should be covered during your trip.

Why not take a trip to the top of the CN Tower, which is Toronto and Canada's most recognisable structure, a building that the locals are intensely proud of. Standing at over 1800 feet in height, it is one of the tallest buildings in the world. Visitors who dare to test their head for heights can take the lift to the top and take in the spectacular views. Once at the top, you can really test your nerves by walking across the transparent glass floor and experience the rush of adrenalin that follows.

An international gem in itself, Kensington Market is a truly a great place to wander through and get a sense of Toronto's rich cultural offerings. It was previously known as the Jewish Market and today houses a multicultural if eclectic mismatch of shops, restaurants, and boutiques, ideal for visitors to sample while on their holidays in Toronto. At Kensington Market, you will delight in the many goods on offer from quite literally the four corners of the world.

For those travellers who cannot resist reawakening their shoe obsession, forget the Christian Louboutin store back home and opt for a visit to the shoe museum when on holidays in Toronto. The Bata Shoe Museum is quite simply unique and not only for the shoe fanatics out there. Housed in a limestone glass building, the museum has an impressive collection of shoes dating back 4,500 years. Amusingly, you can even see pair of Elton John's super high platforms and let us not forget Picasso's elegant boots.

One other little hidden gem for visitors to delight in is the unique and secluded Casa Loma. Even if you are not a Museum buff or Castle aficionado, the Casa Loam is deserving of your full attention. With its overflowing old world charm and elegance, you will not be disappointed as you contemplate a meander through the winding pathways and beautifully landscaped gardens that surround the mansion. You can even close your eyes and almost feel you are reliving this era, with its secret passageways and impressive towers.

Just a short ferry journey across the harbour and the city has its 600 acres of parklands waiting to be discovered. On the Toronto Islands, a nature enthusiast’s dream awaits with its beaches, picnic areas and beautiful walking trails, a hidden getaway waiting to be explored on your holidays in Toronto.
