Montreal Canada

History, architecture and culture come together to make Montréal one of the most popular tourist destinations in Canada's Quebec province.

Travel back in time as you wander the cobblestone streets of Old Montréal, a neighbourhood dotted with centuries-old architectural landmarks. One of the top places to visit in this historical city is the Notre-Dame Basilica of Montréal, a magnificent example of Gothic Revivalist architecture. The interior of the cathedral is just as stunning as the exterior, with a massive pipe organ, stained glass windows and gilded decor. The Three Courthouses located nearby offer glimpses of neoclassical and modernist construction styles. At Saint Joseph's Oratory of Mount Royal, you can admire the basilica’s Italian Renaissance architecture while taking in sunset views over the city.

The culinary delights of the city promise to be a highlight of your Montréal holiday. At Fairmount Bagel, you can taste a Montréal bagel, a sweeter version of its American cousin. For something savoury, dig into a portion of poutine – the uniquely Québécois dish comprising fries topped with gravy and cheese curds – or foie gras poutine, its sophisticated counterpart. A stop at Gibeau Orange Julep for its creamy orange drink is highly recommended too.

Montréal's Mount Royal Park offers a wide variety of seasonal and year-round activities, including cycling, jogging, snowshoeing and skiing. Rafting on the Lachine Rapids of Saint Lawrence River is very popular too. For a quiet day, head to Montréal Botanical Garden to explore its greenhouses, cultural gardens and more.
