MontrealSituated in the provence of Quebec, Montreal is a cultural hub sure to please all of its visitors. You will find yourself enchanted by its European feel and all the quirks that make this Canadian city what it is.
Things to see and do
Confidently embracing its shared French-English history, Montreal is one of North America’s most cosmopolitan and vibrant cities. Offering a unique blend of old European charm, spectacular natural beauty, and modern city living, the city is an ideal destination for a city break or as the first stop on a wider tour of Canada and North America.
The first stop for any visitor, and the heart of the city is Old Montreal, the birthplace of the city. Composed of grand European influenced architecture, picturesque squares and Parisian styled streets, Old Montreal teems with art galleries, boutiques and eateries. Street performers entertain on the lively Place Jacques-Cartier, and the Notre-Dame Basilica, Montreal’s oldest church, tells the story of the city through its spectacular stained glass. With many buildings dating back to the 17th and 18th Century, the best way to see the sights is on horse drawn carriage along Saint Jacques Street and beyond. If you wish to learn more about the history of the city, the Pointe-a-Calliere Museum of Archeology and History will take you on a journey through the ages.
