Love the building, love the permanent collection and the special shows. I head for the members lounge every time I visit, to rest my poor feet and relax with a coffee before continuing on to more galleries. The AGO, for me, is in itself worth...More
Some surprisingly good european art (think Rembrandt, Hals and Tintoreeto though the famous Rubens was on loan) but really enjoyed a good survey of Canadian art with a particular focus on Tom Thompson and the Group of Seven.
Lovely Art Galery with lots of art pieces from famous paintors, sculptors. Next to AGO there is a very nice pub where we ate and drank a nice beer! On wednesdays nights, during the summer, from 6pm to 8pm the entrance is free.

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces
that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
