Montreal is the cultural hub of French Canadian culture with a lively arts and music scene. As Canada’s second largest city, it has a distinctly European feel with cobblestone streets and historic 18th Century churches in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal), alongside more contemporary museums and art galleries. Explore the eclectic patchwork of neighbourhoods and take a cycle tour down the Canal de Lachine or go for a picturesque hike at Parc du Mont Royal. Visit Montreal in the summer and experience the world’s biggest jazz festival at the annual Festival International de Jazz de Montreal or see both established and up-and-coming comedians at the Just for Laughs comedy festival. Or see how maple syrup is made at a traditional ‘sugar shack’ like Sucrerie de la Montagne, a 200-year-old heritage site where visitors can feast on maple syrup-soaked food and desserts.
