Montreal the largest city in Quebec province, has everything a big city can offer. But it also has small and cosy neighbourhoods.
Montreal is also one-of-a-kind, a multicultural city that blends its French accent with that of over 80 other ethnic communities and charms visitors with its Euro-American ambiance. Montreal is also innovative and invigorating, offering a whirlwind of cultural creations, both traditional and modern. Montreal's downtown bustles with life at the foot of Mont Royal, the mountain that gave the city its name, while history is rooted in the old quarters near the river.
With its year-round party atmosphere, Montreal beats to the rhythm of its festivals: jazz, comedy, cinema, fireworks and more! The city beckons you to discover its fashionable boutiques and famed cuisine, over 30 km (18 mi.) of indoor pedestrian walkways, and its lively casino. Stroll through its colourful streets and typical neighbourhoods representative of a mosaic of nations, take a ride along one of its many bicycle paths (over 660 km / 400 mi. in the region), party in its inviting bars... Montreal? Oui, s'il vous plait

Why should I visit Montreal?
Riding in a horse-drawn carriage around the 18th- and 19th-century residences of Old Montreal, you will discover the imposing neo-gothic Notre-Dame Basilica, as well as museums that recount the past. The Old Port is full of galleries, restaurants and coffee houses. Among its attractions, you will find the Montreal Science Centre, a vast complex dedicated to scientific culture that also includes an IMAX theatre. The Old Port is also the starting point for trips along the turbulent Lachine Rapids, at the western end of the island!
Downtown abounds with department stores, boutiques and cinemas, not to mention major museums, such as the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Musee d'art contemporain, the McCord Museum of Canadian History and the Canadian Centre for Architecture.
At Parc Jean-Drapeau, you'll have a ball at Quebec's largest amusement park, La Ronde, and at the beach. At the Biosphere, in the former U.S. pavilion from Expo 67, you'll discover the secrets of water, while at the Stewart Museum, located inside an authentic fort, you'll learn about the history of the New World. In the east end of the city, in the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve neighbourhood, you will find irresistible attractions, such as the Olympic Park, host to the 1976 Olympic Games, which boasts the tallest inclined tower in the world. On the same site, you can also visit the Biodome, a magical place that is home to four ecosystems. Nearby, the Montreal Botanical Garden, one of the world's largest, introduces you to a host of horticultural universes, including a Chinese garden and a Japanese garden, and at the Insectarium you can observe up close insects from around the world!
