Montreal Travel Guide

That it's friendly and easy to get around helps. Nonetheless, this city of immigrants has managed to carve out a place for itself as Québec Province's economic and cultural centre. Montréal's charm lies in its relaxed atmosphere rather than its star attractions.

During the day, the city has a typically north-American bustle - though French-speaking Montréal takes pains to retain its linguistic heritage. Québec's largest city has always kept one foot in the countryside, although mighty skyscrapers have sprung up among the city's churches.
