Located in Canada, Montreal is the largest city of Quebec and the second largest city in Canada. If you are planning to travel to this fascinating country, Montreal is definitely a mandatory stop.
Once there, we recommend you to spend a day visiting the old part of the city, known as Old Montreal.
Packed with hotels, restaurants and nice boutiques it is full of charm. We also recommend you to visit the Calliere Museum there, if you are interesting in learning about the history of this French city and the magnificent Notre Dame Basilica. But the cultural offer of Montreal is huge and there is a great variety of interesting museums for you to visit. One of them is the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, which houses a collection of more than 35000 pieces of Canadian and Inuit art. You should also visit the Montreal Biodome, which is considered to be one of the most fascinating museums of the city since it recreates the four ecosystems with their own climate, vegetation, etc.
Mont Royal, and specially the Mont Royal Cross, considered to be one of the landmarks of Montreal is also worth visiting. With stunning views over the city, it has a nice park which is perfect for practicing all kinds of outdoor sports such as biking or hiking.
If you have booked your Montreal hotel and you are interested in going shopping, Montreal is a great place for doing so. With a great variety of international boutiques, as well as huge shopping centers, there is something for everyone. However, if you want to experience a truly shopping experience, you should go to the Jean Talon market, which offers some of the finest Montreal goods. You will have the opportunity of tasting some of the local food there too.
