Pay a Visit to the CN Tower
At the moment, Dubai’s “Burj Khalifa” is the highest detached building in the world; but there was a time when the CN Tower wore that name with its height of 553 meters. The city is well-known for the tower, and many people visit to get an amazing view of Toronto from the “SkyPod” at a height of 447 meters. The tower also features a level with a glass bottom where you can look straight down. It also features a restaurant and a café.

Explore the Toronto Eaton Centre en PATH
This huge shopping area once started with PATH, an underground path of 28 kilometers that gave people the ability to walk under James Street and to walk towards Yonge and Queen streets while shopping. A few years later, PATH was combined with the Toronto Eaton Centre, and now, together they make the biggest underground shopping center in the world! Ideal for when you would like to go shopping in the city.

Wander Around City Hall
The architecture of this building makes it special and beautiful. The City Hall of Toronto was opened in 1965 and if you would like, you can visit the inside as well. The building, with its two towers, has been built around the white, dish-shaped Council Room. The inside of the building is definitely worth a visit!
