Montréal, Canada

Montreal, c’est si bon! This French-speaking city is considered the cultural capital of Canada, and is a cosmopolitan celebration of Québécois style. A horse-drawn carriage ride around the cobblestone streets and grand buildings of Vieux-Montréal will give you a taste of European flavour. The Basilique Notre-Dame is a confection of stained glass, and the Plateau Mont-Royal district will delight you with its quaint boutiques and cafés. Dig in to a massive plate of poutine to fuel up for a tour of the epic Olympic Park.

 

The Future City


Walk the streets of this city to admire the vestiges of its founding as a mission in 1642, and be charmed by the harmonious juxtaposition of its architecture, both old and new. In this French-speaking city of more than 4 million inhabitants and no fewer than 120 nationalities, French and English coexist alongside a myriad of other languages, and this mix of influences gives rise to a creative exuberance that’s all its own. Montrealers, who are warm and very often multilingual, are quick to strike up a conversation in the hope of getting to know you better. This innate sense of hospitality makes this city a natural hub for exciting international festivals that take place one after the other at a feverish pace.
