Montreal

Quebec

Canada’s second-largest city may be the second-largest French-speaking metropolis on the planet (after Paris), but the attention lavished on its Frenchness — Bistros! Baguettes! People saying “Bonjour”! — tends to nudge aside the many other ethnic communities within Montreal’s remarkably diverse urban sprawl.

Italians, Portuguese and Lebanese have a very visible presence, and the city hosts annual festivals dedicated to everything from Asian-American films to Caribbean food. Throw in a pulsing alternative community and creative scene and a whole new Montreal opens up. That said, it’s this secret blend of French-inspired joie de vivre and cosmopolitan dynamism that has come together to create such an exciting city.

A city culture that has fostered a flourishing arts scene, a music explosion, a medley of world-renowned boutique hotels, the Plateau’s extraordinary range of fantastic restaurants and a cool Parisian vibe that pervades every terrace in the Quartier Latin. It’s easy to imagine you’ve been transported to a distant locale, where hedonism is the national mandate. Only the stunning vista of a stereotypical North American skyline from Parc du Mont Royal’s Kondiaronk Lookout will ground you. Whether your passion is Syrian cuisine, contemporary art or vintage shopping, Montreal serves it up with aplomb.
