Things To Do
Montreal is the largest city in Canada’s Quebec Province. It is set on an island in the St. Lawrence River and named after Mt. Royal, the triple-peaked hill at its heart. Montreal is a big, busy exhilarating city, with so much to see and do.
Walk the streets of this city to admire the vestiges of its founding as a mission in 1642, and be charmed by the harmonious juxtaposition of its architecture, both old and new. In this French-speaking city of more than 4 million inhabitants and no fewer than 120 nationalities, French and English coexist alongside a myriad of other languages, and this mix of influences gives rise to a creative exuberance that’s all its own. Montrealers, who are warm and very often multilingual, are quick to strike up a conversation in the hope of getting to know you better. This innate sense of hospitality makes this city a natural hub for exciting international festivals that take place one after the other at a feverish pace.
The average temperature in late-April in Montreal is 5 – 10 degrees Celsius.
