University of Toronto

Founded in 1827 and now home to over 75,000 students, this is Canada's largest and arguably most famous university. Some of the more interesting sites to visit are the main room of the University of Toronto Bookstore, the chapel and the dining hall at Trinity College, the great rooms on the second floor of the University College, Hart House and its art gallery, and the Sydney Fisher Rare Book Library. The university offers daily tours during the summer, starting at Hart House. The campus is right in the heart of the downtown core.

St. Michael's Catholic Cathedral

With its traditional Neo-Gothic style, exquisite stained glass windows and impressive steeples and spires, St. Michael's Catholic Cathedral resonates as one of Toronto's architectural and spiritual landmarks. St. Michael's Catholic Cathedral is also well-known for its choirs, junior and senior, which perform at various services on Sunday morning. Extremely active in the community, the church has a strong Catholic Women's League and opens its doors for weekly Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

Casa Loma

Bâtie en trois ans à partir de 1911, Casa Loma est née de l’ambition du financier canadien Sir Henry Mill Pellatt. Inspiré par les châteaux européens, Pellatt voulut employer les formidables ressources à sa disposition pour se construire un majestueux château au cœur de Toronto, une résidence à la hauteur de ses aspirations. De style néogothique, Casa Loma semble toute droit sortie des pages d’un conte de fées, abritant des passages cachés et généreusement ornée d’œuvres d’art exquises. Le château compte 98 pièces richement décorées et est entouré par un magnifique domaine qui abrite une serre, des jardins et des écuries. Les piliers sculptés du Grand Hall, les vitraux du plafond de la serre, l’impressionnante collection de livres de la bibliothèque et le tunnel souterrain menant aux écuries ne sont que quelques-uns des nombreux trésors qui caractérisent cet endroit. Le triomphe de Pellatt ne dura cependant pas très longtemps en raison de la fermeture de ses entreprises au lendemain de la Première guerre mondiale, l’obligeant à vendre sa maison. De nos jours, Casa Loma est un musée et accueille des événements populaires.

Chinatown

Although there are several Chinese districts in the Greater Toronto area, including the Don Valley Chinatown East, purists still refer to this one as the main Chinatown. On wide streets lined with bright lights, shops sell everything from medicinal herbs to take-out kung po gai ding. While some of the small shops hold form to more traditional ways, the Dragon City Shopping Mall at Dundas and Spadina is the ultimate East meets West shopping experience. The district is also restaurant rich and although some of them may look daunting to the uninitiated, the food is invariably excellent.

Path

Unlike much of the city, Toronto's financial district is compressed into a conveniently walkable area even in bad weather. That's thanks to the PATH, the "underground city" covering 28-kilometer (17-mile) of adjoining passageways under the streets and connecting to more than 1200 retail stores and services. If you are a little nervous about doing the trek alone, join one of the organized tours by private tour companies.

Tour CN

S’élevant à une hauteur incroyable de 553,3 mètres, la forme mince de la tour CN domine l’horizon de la ville. L’une des plus hautes tours du monde, sans comparaison avec aucune autre structure autoportante dans l’hémisphère occidental, ce magnifique bâtiment fut construit en 1967 par la Compagnie des chemins de fer nationaux du Canada pour servir d’installation de communication et d’observation. À l’époque, ce sommet artificiel était le plus haut du monde et le resta jusqu’en 2007. Le niveau Look Out de la tour CN garantit des vues spectaculaires sur la ville à des kilomètres à la ronde depuis une hauteur de 346 mètres, tandis que le SkyPod est situé à 33 étages supplémentaires pour une perspective unique du monde. Autre attraction de la tour, l’EdgeWalk est la plus haute passerelle autoportante du monde. Ne s’adressant pas aux âmes sensibles, elle offre une expérience unique, perchée sur le toit du Restaurant 360, où vous pourrez déguster un dîner tout en admirant l’horizon scintillant de Toronto à 360 degrés.

Distillery Historic District

Located near the city center in Toronto, the Distillery Historic District is a prominent area of the city where the Gooderham and Worts Distillery used to operate until 1990 CE. The distillery was touted as one of the biggest facilities in the world. After its closure, the Victorian-era buildings of the property became the Distillery District of today. Today, it houses many shops, restaurants and commercial complexes. However, the historic facade of the distillery is still intact and can be seen.

Yonge Street

En addition d'étant une ligne de délimitation est-ouest à Toronto, Yonge Street est la rue la plus longue du monde. De Lake Ontario jusqu'à la ville de Rainy River, ça fait plus que 1900km. Originairement cette route était un sentier fait par les Hurons; c'était fait une rue officielle au fin de 18ème siècle. Aujourd'hui c'est un zone commerciale animé, avec beaucoup de boutiques, restaurants, et cafés, particulièrement entre les rues Front et Lawrence. Un des trois lignes de métro à Toronto est trouvé courant en-dessous de cette route.

Toronto Islands

A recreational wonderland that sits a mere 10-minute ferry ride away from Toronto Harbor, the Toronto Islands constitute a set of 15 small isles in the midst of Lake Ontario. The islands are connected to one another by pathways and bridges that can be traversed on foot. Sprawled across 820 acres (330 hectares) of the lake's expanse, the Toronto Islands are home to the Snake Island, the South Chippewa Island, Mugg's Island, and Forestry Island, with the Centre Island emerging as the biggest of the group. Away from the city's furious bustle, the islands offer a serene retreat with their car-free stretches, and are home to a plethora of landmarks including the Centreville Amusement Park, the clothing-optional Hanlan's Beach, a Frisbee golf course, and the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.
