Montreal is a predominantly French-speaking city in Canada, in the province of Quebec. A unique meeting of European and North American culture, it’s quite unlike any other city in the world. Shoppers will love the Underground City, a below-ground complex with a wealth of stores.
No trip to Montreal is complete without a big serve of poutine – a famous Canadian dish consisting of French fries and cheese curds topped with gravy. It’s available at any hour at La Banquise, a 24-hour poutinerie and restaurant that has become a Montreal institution. A short walk away is St Laurent St, a nightlife hub. It’s well worth a visit for its multitude of bars and restaurants.
If you need to walk the poutine off, check out Mont Royal – a mountain in the middle of the city! Within one of the largest parks in Montreal, it’s lush and green in the summer and blanketed in white in the winter. It’s a site for every traveller to explore.
