Romance on Mount Royal
The Belvedere on Mount Royal is an idyllic attraction in an emblematic Montréal area—and a must for first-time visitors. With its spectacular view of the city, it's an ideal spot for a well-deserved break after a winter walk in Mount Royal Park. Or, breathe in the fresh air at the city's summit and enjoy the romantic atmosphere to cap off an evening with your significant other. If you go during the day, take the opportunity to visit Saint Joseph’s Oratory on Mount Royal just a short distance away.
One of the best ways to immerse yourself in Montréal culture is to taste its culinary classics. Stop by Mile End and try some of the city's iconic specialties, like fresh bagels from Saint-Viateur or Schwartz's Deli’s famous smoked-meat sandwich. If you’re in the Plateau area, be sure to visit La Banquise and discover their 1001 variations of the poutine. For something a little healthier, make your way to the Atwater Market and enjoy its seasonal fruits and vegetables—and pick up some gorgeous flowers while you’re at it!
Go back in time
Without a doubt, Old Montréal is one of the city’s most beautiful neighbourhoods. The architecture and cobblestone streets are reminiscent of Europe, yet it maintains its North American charm, continually reinventing itself with numerous emerging restaurants and businesses. Just 12 Métro stations away from Hotel Ruby Foo’s, the Notre-Dame Basilica and its luminous experience, AURA, are not to be missed. End the day on a high note with a stroll down Rue de la Commune and a ride on the ferris wheel at sunset!
Natural beauty from around the world
If you’re in Montréal in the fall or winter and the weather is not cooperating, reenergize with a visit to the fascinating Botanical Garden near Viau Métro. An oasis in the middle of the city, this Montréal phenomenon's different climates, landscapes, gardens and greenhouses will invigorate you. It’s perfect for a quiet afternoon, on your own or with the family!
