    Beautiful Montreal

    This was my second trip to Montreal and I have to say I LOVE it there. As a francophile from America looking to practice, it's a great place close to home to visit where I can hear French all around and know that if I get super lost I can just switch to english (but it hasn't happened yet!) I love Vieux Montreal and how it is reminiscent of European countries. I would be happy coming back again and again.

    Insider Tip:I love buying a pass for the public transport; cheap, clean, runs late into the night, and helps you explore anywhere in the city!! Also, going in the summer is totally different from the cooler months; summer has a LOT of stuff happening while spring/fall is more tranquil.

    Montreal is very lively! Lots of things to see and even more to eat! Make sure you see Notre Dame Basilica, it will take your breath away. Have a bagel at St Viateur's Bagels for breakfast, and for lunch head to Schwartz's for the famous Montreal Smoked Meat sandwiches!

    Insider Tip:Bring lots of warm and waterproof clothing if traveling in winter. Layers layers layers!
