Montreal in detail

First-time visitors never fail to be surprised by Montreal; French-speaking with grand old buildings and a European vibe, it sits apart from other North American cities.

In fact, it really is like no other. Montreal combines Old Warm charm and metropolitan energy, small-town warmth and friendliness with vibrant, cosmopolitan cool and bohemian vibes with lively, upbeat sparks. Unlike the modern sprawls sometimes associated with other Canadian urban centres, Montreal is anything but samey. In fact, its intoxicating diversity - when it comes to ethnicity, culture, language and cuisine - is what makes this city tick.

For gourmands, the city has plenty to offer; it claims to have the largest number of eateries per capita in North America. Food and drink are celebrated with gusto with a number of enticing culinary events throughout the year. In addition, the city's public markets are something to truly savour - tuck into delicious regional specialities like crepes and fried squid and ubiquitous maple food products as you browse countless stalls selling tantalising treats.
