#Montreal can be both a fascinating and charming place to visit. I happen to visit in the cold winter around Christmas season and it was anything but boring.
This is what I recommend , if you are open to suggestions:
- Place to stay: #Chateau Versailles Hotel
This 4 star hotel, situated in downtown Montreal is easily accessible to public transport, shops – 2 minutes walk from #Ste Catherine street, which is definitely on the must-do shopping list. The hotel has a cold breakfast buffet. It has an old French style deco – if you are in that sort of thing.
- Places to eat: #L’Usine de Spaghetti
This traditional restaurant located in Old Montreal will surprise your taste buds. The ravioli and the peach sangria was the best. But they do have a good collection for wine-lovers as well.
Speaking of food, you cannot ignore dessert if you have a sweet tooth. I would recommend the macarons (moist inside and hard outside – just the way they should be!) from #Première Moisson. The products are an absolute treat.
- Places to visit:
Religious: # St-Joseph Oratory, #Notre Dame Basilica
Shopping: #Underground City, #Rue Ste-Catherines, #Complexe Desjardins #Places Versailles
Recreational: #La Ronde, #Biosphère
These are just a few suggestions. There are other places you can visit. For me, one visit to Montreal is not enough. The city is endearing and you want to go again and again.
