  • Tourism does not offer much to visitors. The representative of the colony this slightly sloppy Park, dry feeders, no water. What is most worthwhile are its restaurants and shops, gourmet or deli with many Italian products, as well as the Jean Talon market.

  • I recommend visiting Petit Italie in Montreal. The atmosphere is great feels like home with order and cleanliness typically Canadian. The District offers the best of Italian traditions from coffee to cannoli even the pork!

Where to stay in Montreal

If beautiful architecture and views over the water appeal, stay in the historic neighborhood of Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal), where you'll be a stone's throw from the best attractions in the city. If modern convenience is more important to you, look for accommodations in the downtown neighborhood of Centre-Ville, or head a bit farther out to the artsy district of Plateau Mont-Royal. LGBTI visitors might want to consider staying in The Village, Montreal's famously progressive hub of gay and lesbian culture.
