    Parliament Hill

    4.5
    26 reviews

    Home to Canada's parliament. Tours every hour, and if you go on the weekend you can see the actual chambers. Tours are also free, and if you're lucky, you'll get to see some free speech in action.

    ByWard Market

    12 reviews

    ByWard Market is the tourist trap hangout spot in Ottawa. This place has tens of restaurants, shopping, and outdoor things to buy, from maple syrup to clothing and everything in between. If the rest of Ottawa is fairly dead, this area is somewhat alive. Check it out.

    National Gallery of Canada

    380 Sussex Drive, Ottawa, ON K1N Canada
    4.5
    12 reviews

    This is probably Canada's best art gallery. The collection is strong on Canadian artists and has some major Modern and contemporary works. Otherwise, it is pretty modest in its holdings. Unfortunately, it does not compare with the best museums in the United States which are older, bigger and have had more generous patrons.

    Notre Dame Basilica

    56 Guigues, Ottawa, ON K1N Canada
    5
    6 reviews

    Very nice architecture. There are times when you are not allowed to visit inside and you might see some weddings over there. Located right in the heart of the tourist district, the church is beautiful on the inside. I think I like the Basilica in Montreal/Quebec City more though.
