I loved going on the tour, the entire building has a lot of history and beauty. The tower has a great view from the top. Tickets are free but you need to get them across the street at the information center.

Great place for taking photos! The line up is a bit long for the elevator (which is the only way up).

You need tickets but are free and available across the street from Parliament. Take your time and enjoy the tour and absorb Canada's history.

It's not a trip to Ottawa without an elevator ride to the top. The small group size allows you time to take it all in, the view, the history, the mechanisms in the bell tower. One of our most memorable stops in Ottawa.

Es muy interesante ver el aspecto multicultural que hay en Canadá. Vimos un representante del parlamento de origen indio y el enorme respeto de los parlamentarios al tratar temas en que discrepaban. Admirable.

A few years ago, I was able to view the Christmas lights from the Peace Tower. I was hoping to be able to do this again on Sunday. Who should I call to make arrangements? Thanks very much for your help.
