INTRODUCING MONTREAL

Montreal buzzes like no place in Canada. It’s the country’s second largest city – two million, with another two million in adjacent towns – and the continent’s largest French-speaking city. It’s undeniably rag-tag: with its congested writhing highways, hectic intersections, potholed roads; medley of new immigrants from all over the world; and its iconic, yet often awkward, architecture.

But above all it’s a city that knows how to have a good time, as its absurdly busy festival calendar proves. This includes some real heavyweight events too, particularly the annual Just for Laughs comedy festival and a Formula-1 Grand Prix race, as well as a glut of music and film festivals.

All this is capped off by an extremely dynamic restaurant, bar and nightlife scene, which helps make Montreal Canada’s most happening city and its most enjoyable city-break destination.
