Montreal is the city where tradition meets the modern world and where Europe meets North America. Cobbled streets and historic architecture abound in this cosmopolitan city of high fashion, world class shopping and dining – it’s no surprise this breathtaking city has been called the Paris of North America.
Sitting on an island on the St Lawrence River, Montreal evolved originally as a centre for the fur trade, and the city’s rich history and proud First Nations’ heritage is greatly in evidence.
For visitors to Montreal, the many attractions include a wealth of museums, art galleries, performing arts centres and more. The city is packed with older districts where winding streets are lined with eclectic shops and galleries, and horse drawn buggies carry visitors to the most stunning sights.
For a truly magical vacation with a French Canadian feel, visit beautiful Montreal.
