About Toronto

Toronto, the capital of Ontario, is modern and welcoming. It is perceived as the most multiculturally diverse city, as its population speaks more than 160 languages and is keen to show off their booming city to visitors. Toronto is unique in a sense of individuality and there is something for everyone.

Beneath the glossy high-rises of downtown Toronto are elegant wooden boardwalks, small stretches of artificial beach and a string of al fresco restaurants and bars. The city is located on the shore of Lake Ontario, which makes it a great choice for day cruises.

Toronto is an exciting, dynamic city, where unique, eclectic events and activities are happening around every corner.
