MONTREAL & QUEBEC TOURING
Two cities distinguished by their European-influenced history and distinctive historic French charm, Montreal and Quebec represent an enchanting stop on any Canada tour.
Considered one of Canada’s most unique cities, there is little escaping Montreal’s notable European influences, where leafy boulevards, neo-gothic architecture and Parisian-like winding streets are a nod to its continental roots, while Montreal also has the distinction of being the largest French speaking city outside of France.
A tour of Montreal is an engaging experience with its plethora of interesting landmarks, most notably the neo-gothic Notre Dame Basilica and the Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupre, a beautiful Gothic Revival church that attracts half a million pilgrims each year.
Furthermore, no visit to Montreal would be complete without a visit to the iconic Olympic Stadium, built for its hosting of the 1976 Games, while a trip up Mount Royal offers memorable vistas across the city.
A trip to nearby Quebec represents a chance to become better acquainted with another city greatly influenced by its French history.
A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site and the only walled city in North America, Quebec is an intriguing blend of old and new, its quaint legacy a far cry from a city that was fought over by the English and French for decades.
Top ten things to do in Montreal and Quebec
- One of Montreal’s landmark attractions, the Notre-Dame Basilica is a stunning example of Gothic Revival architecture with its intricate wood carvings, colours and historic organ.
