Montreal is located in the province of Quebec and it is the second largest city in Canada, not to mention the nation’s most internationally known city. Although French can be largely heard while strolling around the city, most inhabitants are bilingual and are generally willing to provide assistance to lost tourists. The Montreal Metro is the best way to travel to all the big tourist spots, but is also an attraction in itself as each station has a unique architectural design and displays wonderful pieces of public art.
Unlike ultra modern Toronto, walking around Old Montreal’s cobble stoned streets is like walking through the grand, old cities of Europe. With buildings from the 17th-19th centuries well-preserved, such as the Notre Dame Basilica, Old Montreal is a must-see when taking a holiday in this historic city. The Old Port is another great tourist destination, with its spacious waterfront park and attractions such as the world-famous Cirque du Soleil, the Labyrinth and the Clock Tower.
Montreal’s homage to its European background is evident in its innovative fashion and vibrant street style. Rue Ste-Catherine is home to large commercial shops, while streets such as Avenue Mont-Royal and Boulevard St-Laurent offer funkier and hipper boutiques.
The large number of immigrants in Montreal has made the city one of the top destinations for multicultural gastronomic feasts. Thai, Indian and Vietnamese restaurants are just some of the examples of ethnic cuisine that can be found in Montreal. The best Montreal smoked meat can be found in a small, family-run delicatessen called Schwatrz’s. Poutine is also a Montreal specialty, which is essentially made up of french fries smothered with gravy and cheese curds.
