Ports

Charlottetown is a capital city of a Canadian Prince Edward Island province. Both the waterfront and the Vicotiran-era houses in town provide for great walking tours. Despite its small size, Charlottetown is a lively place, with its Centre of the Arts, St. Dunstan's Basilica and beautiful Victoria Park serving as main attractions. Take a walk through Victoria Row, a cobblestone street with a mix of great cafes, unique little shops and music all around.
