Orientate Yourself

Parliament Hill is where it all began. The rolling emerald lawns of Parliament Hill are open and free to visit. This is a good place to acquaint yourself with the neo-Gothic federal government building and the House of Commons.

You can also ride 300 feet up the elevator to the top of the Peace Tower for a view of the downtown below, the confluence of three rivers on the other side and Quebec beyond it with its Gatineau Hills.
