Dynamic and multicultural, Montréal is the perfect blend of old-world charm and cosmopolitan flair.
With both European and North American influences, Montréal is an eclectic, European-inspired metropolis offering the best of both worlds; whether soaking up the romantic charms of the old town, Vieux-Montréal, or shopping in the larger-than-life downtime streets before enjoying a glass of wine at one of the many bar patios. Delve into the Underground City that lies beneath Montréal's streets; visit the famous Notre Dame Basilica; and enjoy panoramic views from the Au Sommet Place Ville Marie Observatory.
