Where to Stay

Whether you opt for the buzz of Downtown, or one of the quieter suburbs, you will have a great time in Montreal. Recognized as one of the most creative neighbourhoods in North America, The Bohemian Plateau-Mont-Royal is home to the greatest concentration of artists in the country. Explore the vintage boutiques, bookstores, and cafés or relax at La Fontaine Park or Jeanne-Mance Park. Excellent shopping can be enjoyed in the centre along Sainte-Catherine Street, whilst chic cafes and bars can be found down trendy Crescent Street. Many tourists stay in the city’s ‘Old Montreal’ district and the nearby port. Gain an understanding of Montreal’s storied history in this picturesque part of town. Little Italy has been home to Montreal’s Italian neighbourhood since the 19th century and has an easy going charm and laidback pace of life. Montrealers specially come here for the Jean-Talon Market.

Things to Do

The best time to visit the city is between June and October, when the weather is nice and many festivals take place. You can enjoy the Montreal Jazz Festival and the Formula One Grand Prix in June; and the largest comedy festival in the world, the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, every July. If you would like to experience the Canadian winter visit between December and February, but make sure to come equipped with snow gear! February is time for the Montreal En Lumiere High Lights Festival, a unique festival combining performing arts, gastronomy and free outdoor family activities. In the winter, you can stay warm inside the “Underground CIty”, a 33 kilometre underground pedestrian network of boutiques, restaurants and attractions. Mont Royal is one of Montreal's largest green spaces and offers magnificent city views from its two main lookouts. It also has a man-made lake, Beaver lake, a sculpture garden and picnic areas.

Eating and Drinking

Montreal has the largest number of restaurants in North America outside of New York, so you’re sure to find exactly what you want. If you are a hamburger lover, visit M:brgr where you can build your own gourmet burger. Try the sweet potato fries with jalapeno mayo! For the best pizza and pasta, visit Wienstein & Gavino's, a happening restaurant with an open kitchen complete with a brick pizza oven. Relax in Café Santropol’s charming garden terrace and try one of their unique and delicious sandwiches. For an authentic experience head to Schwartz's Deli, a world famous Hebrew delicatessen, which has been serving the best smoked meat from an original recipe of spices since 1928. Bagels are a big deal in Montreal and can be found on almost every street corner. They are smaller and lighter than New York bagels and are cooked on a wood fire.

Getting Around

Getting around the city is simple as the public transportation in Montreal is reliable and extensive. However, walking is the preferred way to get around the densely packed downtown and the narrow streets of Old Montreal, especially during summer. The Montreal subway system (called Metro) is safe, clean and easy to understand. If you prefer biking, Montreal has a large bicycle rental system called Bixi. The city has a reputation for being hard to navigate by car, especially for Europeans. Montreal's Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport is located 20 kilometres west of the centre. It is served by all major Canadian and U.S airlines as well as a number of European airlines. The 747 Airport Express bus offers a dedicated service from Downtown 24 hours a day. Getting to the airport can take up to an hour.
