    The basilica is very well maintained and beautiful. The decoration and the color and light effect in the ceilings make its quite spectacular. One of the best attractions in Toronto.

    This is the lovely, historic heart of Montréal. It is a bit crowded and touristy, with souvenir shops and an observation wheel, but the architecture is amazing, and it's home to some of the city's iconic attractions. Definitely a must-visit area.

    Other reviews talk about that is a bit confusing to work your way around the place but we did not felt that was that terrible…we just walked everywhere and if in need, we just asked for help. It is tru that there is not much information in display but again we just around without issues. The outside of the building is very impressive and the church inside as well. Recommendable.

    The Montréal Botanical Garden is very impressive. While all the areas are beautiful, the Chinese and Japanese gardens were ravishing. I also found the alpine and toxic gardens quite interesting. The greenhouses are currently closed, so there's a bit of a discount for admission. It was a bit crowded on a Sunday afternoon, so it may be best to arrive early or on a weekday. Even so, this is an attraction not to be missed.

    We visited the Biodome and enjoyed watching the penguins and puffins. We listened to some of the talks. It was a lot of fun and it was educational.

    A must see site on the outskirts of Montreal. The place is huge and allows you to see every aspect of the inside. Be ready to spend at least an hour to take it all in. Would suggest taking the Metro - an easy walk there via many signs gets you warmed up to hike up all the stairs. And it’s free!

    My favorite part of our visit to Montreal! The market is hopping in the summer with wi detail things for all five senses. My children were given lots of free samples from the bakeries and the shopkeepers in the market. Highlights were the maple syrup stand in the middle of the market, lunch from Le Coin Sante, crepes from the creative and the unbelievable cannoli from St. Martin’s Pâtisserie. Just watch out in St. Martin’s: they sometimes overcharge tourists so be sure to check your receipt. I grabbed a 2 for 1 item and the cashier originally charged me due both but refunded me after I pointed it iut.

    This extensive museum comprises several buildings connected by an underground passage, so there is a lot to see here. I focused on their international and Canadian collections. The Canadian galleries were not particularly big, but they were well-curated and interesting.

    Vieux-Montreal is where the city began, and its old buildings and cobblestone streets make it the most picturesque neighborhood in the city. This is where you'll also find the popular waterfront promenade along the Vieux-Port (Old Port).

    As you wander around Old Montreal, you'll most likely end up in the lively area by the Saint Lawrence River known as the Old Port (Vieux-Port). Here, you'll find plenty of things to do, from riding the giant Ferris wheel or climbing the famous clock tower, right through to screaming down a zipline that descends from dizzying heights across open stretches of water.

    If exhausted, grab a coffee and sit on one of the sunny patios and just soak up the scene.

    In the summer, boat tours leave from the docks here. If you really want to soak up the sun, there is even a man-made beach at the base of the clocktower with views back to the city or out over the river.

    all I can say- this is the vibe (Specially St Paul Street and Jacques Cartier Square)

    We started at the Eaton Shopping centre and finished at Complexe Desjardins which was near to our hotel. I found it quite interesting finding our way through the network of passage ways, although it is definitely not constructed to be a direct route from one end to the other. More likely it was designed to give direct routes between metro stations and the close surrounding buildings. During the journey we came across metro stations, food courts, art installations, wandered into a hotel reception and ended up walking into a vestibule of an office tower. Like other reviews have mentioned, signage and maps are not helpful in navigating the Underground City. We had to ask for directions a few times, and every time locals would always advise us to get the metro, I suppose to them walking is a waste of time. Even when we asked someone who worked in a metro station for directions they told us it was not possible to pass all the way through to Complexe Desjardins! Ignore the locals advice unless they can direct you. Luckily the porter at the hotel we walked into was helpful, and a security guard for one of the companies also helped. Its worth doing once or twice if you have the time, only realised afterwards there are dedicated tours on Viator, might take the fun out of it though.

    Rue Saint-Paul is Montréal's oldest street, i bet you can’t miss it but if you are not sure, start from Bonsecours Market. In recent years, the city has made substantial improvements to this street and several others. Sections of Rue Saint-Paul are pedestrian-only areas and during the day, this area is packed with tourists.

    history buff, it's for you- Montreal was founded in 1642 as the settlement of Fort Ville-Marie, an early French settlement in the region. The very first street was created near a route that bordered a fort that once stood in the city. The street was created by François Dollier de Casson and was named for Paul de Chomedey de Maisonneuve, the city's devout founder. In fact, the city’s founder later established a home on the street in 1650.

    In 1672, Saint Paul Street was paved with cobblestones, a look that the majority of the street still maintains today.

    Coming to life: If you have visited Montreal, you’ve likely spent time on Saint Paul Street. Today, the street maintains much of its historic look with new appeal. You will find many restaurants, exciting street performers, and a car-free area in the summer.

    Rue Ste. Catherine is a street in Montreal that has a variety of different shops to visit. Very busy. Lots of food, lots of hookers, lots of bum asking you for money, some parts are dirty some parts are clean.

    Very entertaining to see for sure.

    Montreal Bell Centre:
    Hockey Statue.
    It is well known that Canada is the capital of hockey. There’s still a little debate about the combination of which preceding sports combined to form Ice Hockey. I think it was around 1880 that the first modern Hockey game was played here in Montreal at the Victoria Skating Rink. (Demolished). The Montreal Canadians would go on to win numerous Stanley Cups. I think the next closest team has only half as many Championships. I think it’s a consensus that the friendly elegant violence is very exciting for the fans.

    It's actually another location almost 45 minutes walking distance from Notre Dam Basilica where you can find beaugiculGrafitis on the walls and houses painted with different colors.

    Since we came in December most of the colors were faded and i believe they renew the paintings after cold seasons.

    A good place to go during late spring and aummer but nothing much in Winter.

    My wife and I spent a week in Montreal exploring the city prior to a conference of mine, and came down to the Market twice, the first time to explore, the second to buy food and treats for the flight home.

    The market was straightforward to get to via Uber from the downtown, a block away from Lachine Canal at the south end of Little Burgundy. The exterior of the market was filled with fresh flowers and plantings for gardening season, as well as a multitude of farmers with their produce. The physical market building was filled with charcuteries, bakeries, butchers, fromageries...we had trouble on our second trip with where to buy from, as the selections were plentiful and enticing!
