Fall is a fantastic time to take advantage of cooler climes and explore Montréal from a completely different angle. Indulge in an evening walking tour and admire the illuminated architectural splendour of the Old City. Known for hosting many renowned festivals and the warm welcome it extends to guests, Montréal is a hotbed of creativity and a patron of the arts. All year long, droves of people are drawn into the streets to join in the spirit of communal celebration and to partake in the incredible array of recreational activities, cultural attractions and culinary delights available.
Montréal gastronomy is as creative and endearing as the city itself. With everything from cozy neighbourhood “restos” to upscale 4-fork establishments, there’s food for any budget. The birthplace of poutine and home to Schwartz’s famous deli, named by Time Magazine the “best place in the milky way to sample a smoked meat sandwich,” it’s no surprise that Montréal has a reputation for its devilish delights.
In the popular tradition of top food destinations around the world, Montréal’s Restaurant Week serves up delectable menus at fixed prices in a variety of restaurants throughout the city. From chic five-star restaurants to cozy little bistros and “Bring Your Own Wine” eateries, there’s something to inspire every craving and palate.
