    All about Montreal tourism

    Montreal is a historic city in the Canadian province of Quebec that lies on the St. Lawrence and Ottawa Rivers. When you visit Montreal, keep in mind that it’s a primarily French-speaking city and, while many residents are bi-lingual, it’s best to practice a few French phrases if you want to get the most out of Montreal tourism. Also keep climate in mind when making your Montreal travel plans: the winters can be bitterly cold so it’s best to plan your trip for the summer months when the temperatures are warm and sunny.

    The first stop during your Montreal vacation should be Old Montreal, the city’s historic district. The top sights in Old Montreal are the Old Port, a historic area which has been converted into a recreational zone, and the stunning Notre-Dame Basilica, an impressive Gothic cathedral located on the Place d’Arms. Also make time during your Montreal vacations for a day at the Museum of Fine Arts, one of the most prestigious in Canada.

    If your trip to Montreal falls in summer, you’ll also be able to enjoy the city’s beautiful natural areas. Mount Royal is one of the largest urban parks in Canada and is full of tranquil forests and lakes, while the Montreal Biodome, an indoor complex featuring plants and animals from around the Americas, is also a top stop for nature-lovers on a Montreal trip. If you’re looking for something indoors, check out the Underground City, an amazing complex of shops and businesses in downtown that’ll let any shopper get their fix.

    Finally, if your travel to Montreal in mid-summer you’ll be able to attend the world-famous Montreal Jazz Festival, one of the most important music festivals in the world. So whether you like history, nature, or culture, you’ll find it all during your Montreal holidays. Have a look at the tips and suggestions from travelers who've taken trips to Montreal and find the best things to see and do.
