Guelph is a small beautiful city located just 100 km west of Toronto. Guelph is famous for its large number of Italian-Canadian citizens, who have been in Guelph for decades. Beside this, Guelph is famous for its beautiful and clean environment and nature. I lived there for two years and I had a really good time there.
