If you are fond of cultural cities in North America full of basilicas, museums, and lush green parks, Montreal is the right place for your next trip. The place is a true blend of Canadian style and French culture, and it makes a seamless transition between both diversities. That is the quality that gives it an advantage. Here you will see towering skyscrapers and metropolitan high rises, as well as European-style cobblestone alleys.
This place is called Mont-Royal, and it has three mountain peaks from where you can see the city, birds' view, see the animals and birds on the top of the mountains, and have a picnic arrangement, sitting under the tree on a rock and munching snacks while sipping coffee poured out of your vacuum flask. This is the dream place you have to visit.
The Jordanian Botanic Garden is another beautiful green expanse of land of 75 acres with 30 themed gardens such as Japanese and Chinese gardens, medical gardens, vibrant rose gardens, tropical plants, orchids, bonsai trees, bromeliads, and a variety of flowers. This is a must-see for any nature-loving tourist. Plants aren't the only living things here; animals of all kinds that you've never seen before can be found standing on the street's edge and signing.
The neo-gothic style Norddam Basilica is one of the oldest churches in Montreal. The color-filled interiors make for beauty: bright purples, vibrant reds, and shiny silver. With the blue vaults of the ceilings and the shimmering lights and lanterns here, you have enough to write a history book in one sitting.
If you are fond of delicious Canadian food, then the Jean-Talon Market is the ideal place to visit. There are more than 300 vendors who come from the countryside to sell fish, meat, and vegetables.
This is Canada's oldest church and one of the largest domes. Visit St. Joseph’s Oratory. If you are intending to have a religious pilgrimage, then take a trip through the 283 steps leading up to the main entrance at the top of the hill and see the surroundings from there.
Amusement is not less in Montreal, and here you have a place to have plenty of amusement: Parc Jean Drapeau, a giant glass sphere, rollercoasters, race cars on a Formula One race track, an outdoor concert venue, and a sandy beach.
This is the oldest museum in Canada—the Musée des Beaux-Arts. Here are displayed paintings by Rembrandt, Canaletto, El Greco, Tiepolo, and Veronese, sculptures, and even interactive installations. Here, modern and contemporary art in the Desmarais Pavilion, archaeology and ancient art in the Hornstein Pavilion, Quebec, Canadian-focused art in the Bourgie Pavilion, and a 2,000 square metre sculpture garden are special attractions for visitors from across the world.
Visit Pointe-à-Callière Museum, where you can see many art and archaeological museums. Here you can see artifacts, photos, and interactive exhibits.
Habitat 67: a building made up of 67 concrete structures. With 150 apartment buildings, this building looks like a bunch of boxes packed one above another.
Famous people include famous politicians, artists, and musicians. All may rest in peace here. This is the site of Canada’s largest cemetery, Notre Dame des Neiges Cemetery. Here you can see stunning mausoleums and tombstones.
And finally, arrange a picnic at the Lachine Canal, rent a bike, cycle and ride along the path, then take a cruise to go up and down the canal.
This place is very lively and vibrant. Yes, we are talking about Montreal’s Chinatown. Once, it was the home of the Jewish community. Here you can enjoy food if your appetite allows- the main list includes gastronomic cuisine, affordable souvenir shops, and quaint bakeries and cafes.
