Montréal tailor-made holidays
Canada's second largest city is surprisingly easily to explore either by foot or metro. Take a walk down Rue Sherbrook to admire the elegant buildings or visit Plateau Mont-Royal for a variety of jazz bars and nightlife. This bustling city is also a hotspot for restaurants, boutiques and has extensive underground tunnels offering even more shopping options.
Begin your Montréal tour in the busiest part of the city, south of Mont Royal - the hill after which this city is named. Walk along the river from Vieux Port and observe the Old City bustling with boutiques. Explore the stunning interior of Basilique Notre-Dame-de-Montréal church and admire the French influence on architecture and design in the city.
History and Art
French Catholics founded Montréal in 1642 and its history can be discovered in Centre d'Histoire de Montréal. A number of museums are dedicated to art and Musée d'Art Contemporain and Musée des Beaux Arts should definitely appear on your Montréal travel itinerary.
Parc Mont-Royal is a central landmark and was landscaped by Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed New York's Central Park. The park provides brilliant views of the city with walkways to explore further. You'll want to take a short trip outside the city centre to visit Jardin Botanique de Montréal and the Biosphere. And you'll find the Biodome in the Olympic Park.
