Toronto day tours - Ontario (Canada)
August 1, 2 - 2004
Are you looking for travel info on Toronto? Or info about the tourist attractions in Toronto? Toronto is the most populous city in Canada and is located in Ontario along the shores of the homonomous lake. The city itself hosts various attractions for tourists, including many museums, the CN tower and the architecture of the downtown. Not too far from Toronto city center, there are the islands on lake Ontario and by a relatively short drive, it will be possible to visit Niagara Falls.
How to get to Toronto from Europe? Toronto has many direct or connecting flights with major airports throughout Europe. In these photos, the flight from Rome to Toronto via London Heathrow. From top to bottom, the B767 from Rome to London overflying London downtown before landing at LHR. Finally the B777 from London to Toronto and the today's route.

The Toronto tour continues to the CN Tower, at time of this trip review, the world's highest building (including antenna on the top).

The CN Tower has observation decks from where there is a beautiful view on the city and on the surroundings.

Toronto, like Ottawa, is home to many interesting museums. I start the tour of Toronto museums from the Ontario Science Center.
The Ontario Science Center in Toronto has a simulated rainforest and its creatures hosted in aquariums and terrariums.
The following day, the tour in Toronto continues by ferry to the Toronto islands.
Pictures of Toronto Islands. On the islands there is a nice park with well maintained trails and a lot of green. This is a popular destination for people living in Toronto, during weekends.

The Toronto Islands have also a sandy beach onto Ontario lake, where clothing is optional.
And small lakes with nice vegetation on Toronto Islands.
Finally, after a very long walk on Toronto Islands, I take the ferry back to downtown, leaving from a different dock.
The day continues with a long visit to Royal Ontario Museum, where world's history (and much more) is nicely represented and commented.
