Montreal Travel Guide

Over a long weekend last year two of my friends and I planned a quick getaway to Montreal. Known for being the second largest French-speaking city in the world, next to Paris, Montreal has something for everyone. As Montreal is part of Canada, a lot of people are bilingual speaking English and French languages.

Before leaving we made a list of everything we wanted to do and see, unfortunately this was accidently left at home while I was rushing out the door to the airport aftr work. Here are some ideas to fill your travel agenda for Must See / Eat / Experience:

Basilique Notre-Dame: A stunning Catholic church built between 1824 and 1829.

Eat a Smoke Meat Sandwich: We checked this off a Reubens.

Montreal Bagel: There are famous for their bagels!

 

Famous Poutine: This one we checked off at 4 am when we had one delivered to our room, thanks Fairmont. They had a sale before closing for renovations.

Explore St-Paul Street: Restaurants, shops, and some night life are all here
