A determined mixture of French and Canadian, this city's dual personality is reflected in its architecture as well as its population. Drop by Place Ville Marie, Place d'Armes and the beautiful Notre Dame Basilica. Take a walk in the beautiful Jean-Drapeau Parc or a Bateau Mouche down the St Lawrence River.
After all that culture and beautiful buildings, you might be in the mood for a slightly less highbrow pursuit. and what could fit the bill better than shopping? And as the Canadian Dollar buys you more for your pound than the US dollar, Canada is THE place to shop! Malls include Montréal Eaton Centre, Complexe des Jardins, Le Faubourg Sainte-Catherine and the Place Ville Marie. Wander around Old Montréal for knick-knacks and antiques. Boulevard St Denis is Montréal's Latin Quarter, lined with shops, cafés, bistros and bars.
Eats & drinks
There are some excellent gourmet French restaurants with an abundance of seafood, steaks and delicious puddings - using maple syrup - Canada's natural staple!

The metro is fast and efficient - take a boat along the river and walk around many of the areas. There's also a cheap bus service.
