Greater Montreal Trip Planner
Welcome to Greater Montreal!Greater Montreal is a unique destination in North America. The cosmopolitan city is a perfect blend of North American modernity and French-European culture. There is practically an endless array of restaurants, coffee houses and music clubs for a sidewalk cappuccino, a culinary craving or a romantic evening. In addition to its social scene, Greater Montreal has some remarkable attractions. Paramount among these is Old Montreal and its Notre Dame Basilica. Also worth a visit is Olympic Stadium and La Ronde, set in the middle of the St Lawrence River and built when the city hosted the Summer Olympic Games and the World Exposition. For art lovers, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is Canada's oldest and one of its best, while music lovers can enjoy the internationally renowned Montreal Symphony Orchestra or take in the Montreal Jazz Festival, which promises to heat up the already sultry summer nights. And for those wanting to take in the entire sweep of the city and the St Lawrence River, the top of Mont Royal offers stunning views.
With its collection of 21,000 plant species and cultivars, 10 exhibition greenhouses, some thirty thematic gardens, and teams of researchers and activities staff, the Montréal Botanical Garden ranks as one of the world's largest and most spectacular botanical gardens.
