Montreal Travel Guide

  • Plan your trip to Montreal

    Perhaps no other Canadian city loves food, architecture and all-around merrymaking more than Montreal. Feel its European soul on the cobblestoned streets of the Old Port near Bonsecours Market. Explore its artsy vibes in the colourful Plateau-Mont-Royal. Taste its unique flavours at one of its acclaimed restaurants. See its love of design in the Gothic features of Notre-Dame Basilica. Take in the view from Grande roue de Montréal. And do not leave without soaking up its joie de vivre at its renowned festivals, from Just for Laughs to the Jazz Festival.

Explore Montreal

  • Culinary riches

    More than just bagels and poutine (though you definitely want to try both!), Montreal’s cuisine is embedded in its identity. Dine at one of its farm-to-table restaurants for a real taste of Quebec’s terroir (think locally sourced seafood, boreal fruits and, yes, maple desserts) or savour a locally brewed beer on one of its many European-style patios. Your taste buds will thank you.

  • The quieter side of Montreal, Quebec

    Montreal tourism isn't limited to the gregarious. Visitors to Montreal looking for a more peaceful experience can visit downtown’s Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, explore the 190-acre Montreal Botanical Garden near the Olympic Stadium, or take a peaceful stroll through Mount Royal Park to admire the city skyline. The Biosphere, an environmental learning centre, is definitely the highlight of Saint Helen’s Island, either to visit or just to gaze at from the outside the geodesic dome is one of the most interesting buildings in Canada.
