The best time to visit is in the summertime, when the city comes alive with endless festivals. Montréal is surprisingly easy to navigate, especially by bicycle. Take a cycling tour of the scenic Canal de Lachine or pedal a retreat to the sprawling hilltop city-park of Mount Royal – home to Canada’s largest church, the Catholic shrine of St Joseph’s Oratory. Explore Old Montréal’s ancient cobbled streets, admiring historic cathedrals and the breathtaking Notre-Dame Basilica, before stopping for a coffee in one of the traditional cafés which line Boulevard Saint-Laurent or Place Jacques-Cartier.
Uncover more of the city’s fascinating history at Pointe-à-Callière Museum, before discovering its modern side with a spine-tingling opera performance at Place des Arts or a walk through the Olympic Stadium’s immersive Biodôme experience. Head below street-level to the Underground City, an astonishing 20-mile warren of tunnels lined with shops, bars and restaurants; or wander around hip Mile End, a lively artists’ district known for its relaxed cafés and trendy boutiques. Gourmands will love the iconic Jean-Talon Market, an open-air foodie haven in Little Italy, while art enthusiasts should visit the excellent Museum of Fine Arts. After dark, head to Rue St-Denis in the Latin Quarter, famous for its lively nightlife.
Montréal is a cosmopolitan shopping destination. Rue Sainte-Catherine is the city’s mainstream retail hub, while vintage-hunters will love funky Mount-Royal Avenue’s stylish second-hand stores. Admire historic architecture while browsing upscale designer boutiques along Rue Saint-Denis, before perusing high-end stores on the cobblestones of Rue Saint-Paul. You’ll also find several big shopping malls, including the Complexe Desjardins and Place Ville Marie.

The city’s most celebrated haute cuisine offering, Toqué!, serves inventive farm-to-fork Québécois dishes, while iconic Jewish deli Schwartz’s offers melt-in-the-mouth smoked beef sandwiches in a more laidback atmosphere. Don’t travel home without trying the provincial speciality, poutine – a moreish dish of crispy French fries smothered in cheese curds and rich gravy.
