    Early morning sunrise experience 18 minute walk from the Sofitel Hotel up to Belvedere Kondiaronk View Point ! There are many many options to choose from but if your desire is to make a " quick strike " and experience a beautiful sunrise this hike is for you ! It requires sets of steps to get to but well worth the climb ! Sunrise on a Sunday surprisingly not crowded !

    We enjoyed walking around old Montreal. It's a beautiful city with European charm. Definitely want to go back.

    A magical experience and in awe of the history. Well worth viewing! Wish we had taken the tour as the experience would have been enhanced.

    The basilica and complex are amazing and there is no charge to enter but donations are accepted. The architecture is much less ornate than the other Notre Dame Basilica but somehow the simplicity and modernity was calming and conducive to focusing on the spirituality of the basilica. The view from the terrace is also amazing. To get here, we took the Metro orange line to Snowden station, then walked along Queen Mary Road to the entry. There is a shuttle van that takes you up and down the hill. Overall, we enjoyed our visit and history of the Oratory. We highly recommend to visit here.

    The Garden is huge and the different sections had been fitted with lights appropriate to the various cultures (First Nation, Chinese, Japanese, etc.) Highly recommend it because it includes access to the indoor greenhouses which were also amazing.

    We were walking along when my wife (her name is Barbie) spotted the Barbie Expo sign. My Barbie being a Barbie doll fan since childhood decided we were going in. No way was I going to object, so I found a nice place to sit and watch a football game on my phone while my Barbie walked among the hundred (yes, hundreds) of Barbie dolls costumed to reflect different cultures, fashion styles and eras, professions, and events. There were Barbies of all ages, ethnicities, and races. There were fancy Barbies and casual Barbies. It was a seemingly endless display of probably every Barbie ever created (and where did they all come from?). There was even a photo booth you could go into and have your picture taken pretending to be a new-in-box Barbie doll. My wife wandered for an hour, I watched the football game until my phone died. My team won. My wife saw all her childhood Barbie's. It was a great day.

    Market Jean-Talon is at the same Metro stop (Orange Line), and while we were there in November, many kiosks were still operating outdoors. Many were closed for the winter season, but midway was a Middle Eastern Sweet Shop and we cheated and stuffed our face with Baclava and other things we could not pronounce but looked so good and tasted great. We bought sausages and salad fixings and then cooked them back at the apartment and enjoyed the meal. It was just like living here.

    This was one of the very best museums we have ever been in. We spent hours and hours there. It is creatively and brilliantly curated.

    As you walk along the river, you will find some historic marks that explain the area and what was once here. This part of the port still serves the cruise and tourism industry. There are things to do here and some green space. Nearby are lots of cafes and restaurants. Good place on a sunny day.

    We had a great afternoon at the market, although we probably should have arrive earlier when more stalls were open. Still we were able to shop for dinner plus a lot of stuff for our apartment. Very pleasant merchants throughout.

    The metro covers many areas of Montreal and we used it during our visit to get to many areas. The metro staff was helpful and supportive in providing us with directions, information, and tickets. The metro comes often and wait time was minimal. It's a good way to get around the city.

    We visited in Nov. of 2022, I'm afraid of heights, but braved the wheel! It's a bit scary, but worth the views! They had a beautiful Christmas tree in front, great photo op. !
    It was $25.00 per person and you go around 4 times.
    Worth a visit for sure.

    Nice to see a modern hockey arena right in the middle of downtown in an area that is well served by transit. Nice plaza out front with lots of statues and plaques. Big efficient place.

    Thriving 'hood with a youthful, fun vibe. Artists murals are tucked around corners, behind parking lots, dotted throughout. Small parks also dot the urban scape, as do great eating places, interesting shops, galleries, clothing stores and many cafes. This is a neighbourhood that feels human in scale, viable and vivacious.
