Best of Montreal: gastronomy and more
One of the most interesting cities across Canada, Montreal brings together all the contrasts of French
and English cultures. Full of great sights, beautiful surroundings, amazing gastronomy and nightlife, the city deserves to get into your travel itinerary.

If you needed just one good reason to fall in love with Montreal, it would have to be the culture of good food. After all, food is serious business for the city's residents. Come to Montreal and let them prove to you once and for all that North America is not just about fast food.

This passion for good food goes beyond the limits of the restaurants. In Montreal, you will also find
several shops specializing in kitchen and special spices, popular markets, cooking classes and numerous bars, pubs and cafes. For those who enjoy food, you cannot miss the smoked meat in Montreal.  The staple dish of the city will make your mouth water and have you craving for more.
Still on the theme "cuisine", be sure to also visit the Jean Talon and Atwater markets. These European inspired markets have everything you need from cheese, wine, spices and much more, great to spruce
up any picnic.

I leave here my special little list of cafes, bars and restaurants in Montreal for you to enjoy every good calorie: Olive + Gourmando, Schwartz's, St. Viateur Bagel, Caffé Italia, Beauty's Café, Juliette, Toqué, Maison Boulud, Ferreira Café, Chasse et Pêche and L'auberge Saint-Gabriel. For the trendiest restaurants, be sure to make a reservation.

When it comes to tourist attraction, Montreal also leaves nothing to be desired. The starting point for
the city is the Old Montreal (Vieux-Montréal) and the Old Port (Vieux-Port). There you will find the main postcards of the city and a historical and architectural beauty to be envied by many metropolises.

For family events and activities, go to the old Olympic Complex, the Biodome - a placeholder to play the different biomes of the continent - the beautiful Botanical Gardens and the Oratory of Saint Joseph, from where you have a great view of the city. This is a bit more distant from downtown Montreal, but the metro can take you anywhere you need to be in a relatively short amount of time. If you cannot resist a good shopping spree, I recommend strolling down the streets Saint Catherine and Saint Denis, and Laurier Avenue. You’ll definitely get your fashion kick.
In addition to this script for Montreal, three important points cannot be missed: a walk through the
charming and hippie Plateau district du Mont-Royal, a tour around the Parc Jean Drapeau, formed by
the artificial island Île Notre-Dame and the Ile Saint Helen, wherethe Grand Prix takes place every year and then be sure to visit the Museum of Fine Arts and its beautiful collections.
You can include Montreal on a train trip for eastern Canada, between Toronto and Quebec City. I bet
you will be enchanted by the beauty of this country! Amusez-vous!
