Little Italy is at the geographic centre of Toronto's hippest downtown neighbourhoods. Trinity Bellwoods, Harbord Village, Little Portugal, Dufferin Grove, and The Annex are literally all around, and all their wicked features are completely accessible by foot.
Edwardian and Victorian row houses and semis from around the early 1900s are most common. While many are still lovingly maintained with old-school metal railings and an abundance of concrete hardscaping, others have experienced dramatic updating to suit modern tastes.
