Montréal is one of the oldest and most interesting cities in North America. Montréal's charm lies in its old-world atmosphere rather than its star attractions. Nonetheless, this city of immigrants has managed to carve out a place for itself as Quebec's economic and cultural centre. That it's friendly and easy to get around helps.

Quebec's largest city keeps one foot in the past and one in the present, with 19th century churches nestled in the shadows of soaring modern skyscrapers. During the day, the city has a typically North American bustle — while French-speaking Montréal takes pains to retain its linguistic heritage.



The old town of Montréal is a wonderful feast for the senses. The streets are filled with musicians, restaurants, groovy shops and squares. Grab an outside table, shut your eyes and take in the smells, sounds and general atmosphere of bonhomie.

Some people say it's the French background, others the sin-and-repent mentality of a predominantly Catholic city; whatever the reason, Montréalers love to eat out. The reputation for culinary excellence has Gallic roots, but a more recent cosmopolitanism makes for a United Nations of cuisine.
