The largest city in the proudly French-minded province of Quebec, Montreal is a remarkably beautiful city in the Spring, Summer, and Fall, when its hilly landscape along the St. Lawrence River can be best appreciated, the Vieux-Port de Montreal, Parc du Mont-Royal, and Botanical Gardens being the best places to start.
But natural beauty isn't all the city has to offer. Montreal is a city full of art, good food, and entertaining nightlife. If you're looking for a place to start, there's no shortage of all three on Rue St-Denis.
As a tourist, Montreal will keep you busy no matter the season, and if you're a North American Francophile, visiting this remarkable city will fulfill all your desires.
