Once you have landed at Pierre Elliott Trudeau international airport you will soon discover the many delights of Montreal. It is one of the most interesting cities in all of Canada, a city where old and new meet with style and fashion.
If this is your first time in Montreal you will find plenty to keep you entertained during your trip, and one of the first things you’ll think about is finding somewhere good to eat…
Food & Drink
Montreal has a large number of restaurants that cater for all tastes from fast food to fine dining. You could have pancakes with maple syrup for breakfast or perhaps a Canadian Beaver Tail Pastry for lunch while walking around the city taking in the many different sights and sounds. For evening dinner we suggest you try the award winning Montreal restaurants ‘Toqué!’ and ‘Europea’ for arguably the finest cuisine in all of Montreal.
Along with having great food there are excellent shopping opportunities to be had at the Eaton Centre, attracting visitors from all over the country who want quality designer outlets, this serves as the perfect place to pick up gifts for your loved ones back home.
The most popular sport is ice hockey, with the Montreal Canadiens being one of the original six teams in the National Hockey League, therefore catching an ice hockey game at the Bell Centre is a must if you have the opportunity!
The city is also a great destination for families, with attractions like the Montreal Biodôme and La Ronde Amusement Park.
Montreal is also known for its buzzing nightlife. The always-happening city offers a wide array of venues to choose from, making it a common destination for tourists and locals looking to have a good time at the best bars and clubs.
Montreal has often been called “Canada’s Cultural Capital”, and is Canada’s centre for French language television productions, radio, theatre, film, multimedia, and publishing. Montreal’s many cultural communities have given it a distinct local culture.
For a taste of historic Montreal, spend a day exploring the 18th-century buildings of Vieux-Montréal, which now house small museums and souvenir shops. We also highly recommend visiting the beautiful Lafontaine Park and The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts during your short stay.
