Enjoy the European atmosphere of Quebec’s capital.

Want to truly take in the beauty of Montreal? Head to the Belvedere observatory up Mont-Royal for a panoramic view of the city’s skyline. Hopefully you’ve worked up an appetite, because Montreal is a city for foodies. Be sure to partake of regional specialties like poutine or Montreal-style pastrami, and hit up one of the city’s two main markets: Jean-Talon and Atwater. There’s also plenty of history and architecture to view, whether it’s the gothic Notre-Dame Basilica, the charm of Old-Montreal or the artsy Plateau neighborhood.
