Montreal is an eclectic mix of old and new, where you can see, hear and taste the French and European influences everywhere you go. Ancient churches sit side by side with modern glittering skyscrapers while the chic French style of the people is apparent in their cutting edge boutiques, shops and restaurants. Take the time to stroll through the narrow cobblestone streets of Old Montreal, a Parisian-style district dating back to the 17th century. Here you can find museums, cultural landmarks and historic buildings including the fabulous Notre Dame Cathedral, an intricate and historical basilica built in Gothic style. Admire the breathtaking views of the city from the parklands of Mount Royal, whilst foodies can explore the Jean-Talon Market, home to delicious produce including cheese, oysters, meat, fish and of course, maple syrup.
