Top 7 Canadian Cities & Regions Travel Guides (PDF Chapters) Lonely Planet



Few cities can compete with Montréal’s mouth-watering mix of food, festivals and fun-centric living. This bohemian, culture-loving city has many virtues, not least of which is its uncanny ability to astonish.


The breathtaking four-seasonal palette of Ontario’s vast wilderness, endless forests and abundant wildlife awaits. Both Toronto and Ottawa have hopping arts and entertainment scenes, kept current by the neighborly influences of New York and Montréal.


The two prominent stars of Manitoba are Winnipeg, with its big-city sophistication, and Churchill, with its profusion of natural wonders. In between, gently rolling fields of grain, sunflowers and wildflowers reach all the way north to Arctic tundra.


Alberta is home to Jasper and Banff, two of the world’s oldest national parks which, despite their wild and rugged terrain, remain well-trammeled and easily accessible. Edmonton’s fringe theater festival is the world’s second largest, while Calgary’s July ‘Stampede’ is as unapologetically ostentatious as the city that hosts it.


This chapter contains the Vancouver Today, History, Food & Drink, Green Vancouver, Arts & Culture, Transport and Directory A–Z chapters from Lonely Planet's Vancouver guidebook.

Explore Roman fountains in Aix-en-Provence

Aix-en-Provence, France. By Simon Raven
Aix-en-Provence is a beautiful old Roman city in southern France. Famed for its fountains and beautiful cobbled streets the Provence region of France is drenched in golden sunlight that that inspired both Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin to paint here. The markets in the town squares are brimming with fresh produce, spices flowers and fresh seafood that will make you wish you could never leave. If you're not staying somewhere self-catering, enjoy fine dining in one of many restaurants in the city and be sure to sample the wine.
