As part of my second visit to the Parliament Hill I saw the Peace Tower which does deserve your attention and time if for a few reasons like it is part of the parliament hill buildings. I like to to look at large clocks. I do not think you can take a tour in French to admire and see the... More

The free tour of the Parliament includes the Peace Tower where one could enjoy a fantastic view of the city. In October, the fall foliage added more breathtaking views of the city and the landmarks.

I hope and pray people will still be allowed in the Peace Tower following yesterday's events. The name has to mean something in this whole tragedy.

Definitely take the time to go up the Peace Tower. A guide remains in the elevator (only 7 occupants at a time). The guide will explain the tower's bells, too. Beautiful views of Rideau Street and the Gatineau Bridge.

The tower is great but really wanted to tour Parliament. The line was long and did not move after 15 minutes. Will have to come back when less busy or more efficient.
