Toronto CityPASS Helps Fall Travelers Save on Toronto's Top Attractions

Toronto — As Canada’s largest city and the country’s entertainment, cultural and financial capital, Toronto attracts tourists from around the globe who come to visit some of the world’s tallest towers, to play in the city’s 1,500 parks, and to marvel in its many museums.

Toronto CityPASS makes visiting more affordable and convenient by packaging discounted admission to the city’s essential attractions: CN Tower, Royal Ontario Museum, Ontario Science Centre, Casa Loma, and the Toronto Zoo. And that discount is substantial: Toronto CityPASS costs 45 percent less than the combined price of the same tickets purchased individually. Adult Toronto CityPASS booklets cost $58.40 CAD (a value of $120.30); child passes (ages 4-12) retail for $34.50 CAD. Note: Prices do not include applicable sales tax.

Toronto’s fall travelers won’t want to miss a new suite of recently opened permanent galleries at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM). Featuring both never-before-seen objects and many artifacts that had been in storage since 2004 for the duration of the Renaissance ROM expansion project, the new galleries showcase the ancient civilizations of Rome, Byzantium and Nubia. Among the not-to-be-missed treasures are an Early Byzantine ciborium (altar canopy) dating from about AD 500-600, the only such example from this period to have survived from the Middle East (Byzantium Gallery); opulent Imperial Roman jewelry (Rome and the Near East); and intricately inscribed shawabtis (magical figures) found in the pyramid tombs of the Napatan kings (Nubia).

At Casa Loma, visitors can explore this medieval-style castle’s secret passages, lofty towers and elegant rooms. Highlights include The Conservatory, with its stunning stained-glass dome and Italian marble floors; and the Great Hall, featuring an impressive 60-foot-high (18 meters), oak-beamed ceiling.

CN Tower continues to offer the best views of Toronto, while the Ontario Science Centre’s interactive exhibits and the Toronto Zoo’s acres of animal habitats are definite must-sees for families.

Toronto CityPASS can be purchased online at or at any of the CityPASS attractions. It is valid for nine consecutive days, beginning with the first day of use. CityPASS ticket booklets are also available for New York City, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Hollywood, Houston, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle and Southern California.
