For many travelers, Montreal is as close as you can get to Europe without leaving North America. Sitting on an island in the St. Lawrence River, Montreal pairs a predominantly French-speaking population with cobblestone streets and a dizzying array of churches, including the Gothic Revival-style Notre-Dame Basilica, reminiscent of the great cathedrals of France.
But Montreal is also very much a modern metropolis with a fabulous culinary and design scene. Whether it’s your first time planning a trip to Montreal or you’re thinking of a return visit, we’ll give you some of our favorite points and miles strategies, restaurant recommendations and must-see sights to help you create your ideal Montreal vacation.
