French-speaking Montreal is a city of culture and colour, that changes with the seasons and offers a lively destination for visitors to immerse themselves into authentic Canada.
Festivals such as the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal and the FrancoFolies permeate the Montreal calendar, alongside the Formula One Grand Prix and winter’s Montreal en Lumiere.
Foodies will discover an experience of exception in Montreal, which has the largest number of restaurants per resident in the whole of North America! From fast food faves to top-end gastronomy, this is a city with sustenance at its heart!
For families, there are many museums in science and nature, as well as an amusement park and safe bike trails. Winter sports such as ice skating are popular with younger visitors in the snowy season.
Trendy boutiques provide great shopping for those seeking a little retail therapy, and the jazz bars and nightclubs offer plenty to keep visitors dancing long into the night. A visit to the Notre-Dame Basilica is a ‘must’ while you’re in the city.
