Montréal (Canada) was discovered by Jacques Cartier, a French traveller. From this time, French influence is still powerful insomuch Montréal is considered as the fourth largest city of french speaking people in the world.
Of course, as many cities, you can stroll among historic streets, full of anecdotes to satisfy curious people, but also you can commit yourself to new attractions able to create a certain buzz. I have selected for you the most “in” things to deal with if you have plan to get there.
1. Le complexe des Ailes -> Cold and low temperatures aren’t friends with everyone in Montréal. Can you imagine that the winter time can be worst than in NY? Montréal has found the solution building veritable underground passages. For me, it looks museums because you have a huge quantity of modern installations. Visitors are invited to participate to them and share their feelings on online social platforms. For instance, you had to write who are you and who could be your alterego on papers.
2. Jeanne Mance Park -> Nothing better to “take a walk on the wild side”, Jeanne Mance might be the best park to have a total sight on Montréal.
3. Olive & Gourmando restaurant -> A place promoting home made recipe as if your grandmother was hosting you. Childhood memories will come up for sure. The décor is basic but quite good-looking. Good vibrations, the staff is nice and the dishes in line with your expectations. I am sure that you will leave with a multitude of ideas to reshape your interiors.
