What you'll do

European elegance meets Canadian charm in the Quebecois metropolis of Montreal. In this French-infused city with sights spanning centuries, you couldn’t possibly see it all in a single day – but, from centuries-old stone facades to modern marvels, your local host will help you discover Montreal’s je ne sais quoi at 10 unmissable attractions. You’ll stop and admire the old port used by 17th-century French fur traders and the breathtaking Notre-Dame Basilica (nope, you’re still not in France!) as you make your way between famous neighborhoods like Little Italy and Mile End. Tick more off your bucket list at local hangouts like Jean-Talon Market and Librairie Drawn & Quarterly – a tucked-away comic store filled with local literary treasures.

Where you’ll go

In the heart of Montreal, where the city’s must-sees congregate, your local host will plot the perfect route between as many of them as possible. You’ll start in Old Montreal, a historic slice of European heritage on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, and make your way two miles east to the laid-back Plateau area lined with contemporary galleries and casual cafés serving Canadian cuisine. Grab a bagel or a plate piled high with poutine, then head two miles further west, deeper into the city, to the multicultural Mile End neighborhood and Little Italy, an enchanting Italian enclave that takes you out of France for a few minutes. End your day with an ice-cold craft brew and a great conversation at much-loved neighborhood pub Dieu du Ciel.
