    We had been to Toronto in the Yorkville neighbourhood, and let me tell you my experience there was amazing! :-)

    Yorkville is one of Toronto’s most elegant shopping and dining areas!

    On many occasions, celebrities from all over North America can be spotted in the area, especially during the Toronto International Film Festival!

    We went to Greektown on the Danforth,from Yorkville and found that it boasts one of the highest concentrations of restaurants per kilometre in the world!
