Customer Travel Tip: Grab a map and mark the places u wanna c. Try bixi bike rental and ride the waterfront and the large bridge.

Liked: The metro is great fast and easy but not very connected outside of core of Montreal. Free outdoor music events are very busy and so easy to have fun with people. Picnik electronic and tam tam. Very busy Thursday -Friday- Saturday.

Disliked: Sometimes I noticed people were off or hard to tolerate. I noticed the homeless people downtown can be pushy and off putting.

Customer Travel Tip: I think it has some really interesting museum such as the biodome or biosphere (I can't remember the name exactly) but the highlight for me was walking up Mont Royal - amazing views!

Liked: An interesting city, more akin to a European city in terms of culture and architecture. It has a nice port, trendy restaurants and excellent nightlife. I also liked the different neighbourhoods including the Latin Quarter. I noticed an interesting mix of people and the bilingual element is unique.

Disliked: It is a bit busy and less attractive in some areas but not that bad.

City break Romantic getaway Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Pretty much where you stay at will make a difference on travel time and convenince. Utilize the underground when possible. St Catherine is a cool spot to hang out. Spend at least a day in Old Montreal. Book any tours in advance. The free old montreal tour was amazing. If you have a day to spare, take a bus trip up to Quebec City.

Liked: the history and the architecture

Customer Travel Tip: Get a three-day or weekly pass for the subway, so you don't have to worry. Totally worth it.

Liked: Montreal is beautiful. You can do as little or as much as you want. The city is alive at night and during the day. There are so many festivals on it's crazy. Shopping is phenomenal. Architecture is gorgeous. Just an amazing city.

Disliked: It did rain one of my days there, but it was nice to stay inside and see a movie. It would have been more unfortunate if I was only staying a couple days.
