Charlottetown is the capital and largest city of the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island.  It was an important town during the formation of the Canada, as it was where the Charlottetown Conference was held which led to the formation of the Canadian Confederation, but the original town has since merged with neighbouring towns to form a larger municipality.  Like much of the modern Americas, historic buildings only go back to the Victorian era, unlike medieval Europe, but they built a new cruise terminal in 2007 and are trying to build up tourism.

Charlottetown lies on the Northumberland Straight on the Gulf of St. Lawrence.  This cruise destination is bursting with colour and culture whatever the season.  This pretty port is inspiration for the Anne of Green Gables novels and is Canada´s smallest and greenest province.  Exploring its main historic hotspots is a delight and, whether you go on foot or hop aboard a boat or bus, a guided tour will help you make the most of your visit.
