Where the old world meets the new

Leading edge comedy festivals and world class jazz events. One of North America’s largest cathedrals. Literally thousands of shops and any numbers of galleries and museums. Montreal is one of Canada’s liveliest cities. Montreal prides itself on its energy, and on being different. Take a walking or cycling tour around Montreal’s old quarter and explore the traditions upon which this great city was founded. High gabled buildings boast colourfully decorated skylight windows. The Notre-Dame Basilica dominates the skyline with its grand dome. The downtown quarter around St-Catharine Street offers over 3000 shops, and the huge list of museums includes the famous McCord Museum of Canadian History. As you might expect of a city that has a strong French influence, there is an oustanding choice of excellent restaurants, bistros, bars and cafés to choose from. There’s a bohemian atmosphere too. The Montreal Jazz Festival – held in June each year - features hundreds of world class players taking part in over 400 different shows and events. And the Just For Laughs Festival attracts thousands of comedy lovers every summer. As an entertaining destination, Montreal is definitely not to be laughed at.
