Montreal F1Few cities can compete with Montreal’s mouth-watering mix of food, festivals, and fun-centric living.

Montreal is a beautiful slice of old Europe in a pie of contemporary design. A day’s wander might take you through the photogenic 18th-century facades of Old Montreal followed by a cycling tour of the lovely Canal de Lachine, or take you through the glittering shops and restaurants of downtown, ending at the inviting terraced cafes of Plateau Mont-Royal. The architectural sweep of the city takes in a wealth of heritage churches such as the breathtaking Basilique Notre-Dame, as well as 20th-century icons like the Stade Olympique and Habitat 67.
