Preston Street BIA – Little Italy
Preston Street is the heart of Ottawa's Little Italy neighbourhood. Renamed Corso Italia to reflect the Italian heritage of the area, it offers tree-lined streets, award-winning Italian and international cuisine and independent boutiques, making this one of Ottawa's most inviting neighbourhoods. This is your cycle-friendly rest stop that links the City's two most picturesque cycling paths, the Ottawa River and the Rideau Canal Pathways. Park your bike here and enjoy one of the many sunny patios in this area. Centrally located in west Centretown between Dow's Lake and the War Museum and served by the Trillium LRT line, Little Italy is easy to get to from any hotel or neighbourhood. This is home to some of Ottawa's biggest festivals, Italian Week in June and GrapeFest in September, but there is always something to do in Little Italy.
