Tourism Montreal

Montreal is a fascinating mix of urban thrills and natural wonders, neatly contained in one pristine island setting. Which means that there’s something for everyone, from the adventure-seeker to the cultural purist. Montreal takes its fun very seriously, and its seriousness lightly. It’s a city that loves to party, especially with its visitors. And visitors love Montreal.

Montreal perfectly harmonizes European charm and eclectic North American style. The UNESCO City of Design and the province’s intellectual and artistic centre resonates with the rhythms and colours of Montrealers

Latin quarter

The name is still valid today since UQAM also elected to settle in the same spot as its predecessor, at the end of the 1960’s.

The Montréal terraces were born there. The mix of institutions and schools allow for an interesting mix of neckties and jeans; pizza and sushi; Highland Malt and flammenkuche; manga and tea den. Everything overlaps on top of Montréal’s main métro station: Berri-UQAM.

THE QUARTIER LATIN QUICKLY BECAME SYNONYMOUS WITH JOIE DE VIVRE, WHICH IS APPEALING IN ENGLISH AS IT IS IN FRENCH.

Add to the mix one ounce of Théâtre Saint-Denis, three grams of Cinématheque québécoise, National Film Board, and Cineplex Odeon, mix with the Just for Laughs festival, and let to marinate…

More than ever, rue Saint-Denis is the indispensable pedestrian link, the spine that unites in the best possible way the Plateau and Old Montréal.
