Montréal is bursting with fun, energy and creativity. Year-round, the city whirls with festivals, events and exhibitions that keep music lovers, science geeks, fashion designers, history buffs and curious minds motivated, engaged and interested. The city’s culinary scene is world-renowned too so even the pickiest of palates will be wowed by the diversity of choices, which include vegan and vegetarian. You will want to explore, and getting around Montréal is safe and easy by foot, métro, bus and bike. Stop-offs in its colourful neighbourhoods, public spaces and lush parks are also a definite must. Montrealers are friendly and relaxed, and quite often multilingual, so you can expect a relaxed welcome and easy conversation during your visit. Enjoy the people, soak up the dynamic ambiance and have fun getting to know our city!
