At the center of town within an easily walkable few blocks, with quaint cobblestone streets, lovely early architecture and fascinating historical sites blended with trendy shops, ultramodern art galleries and exceptional restaurants. A blend of French and English speaking locals enhance this city’s exciting international flavor, but the city really lures visitors with the 19th century architecture of Old Montréal and nearly 100 annual festivals including one of the world’s top jazz fests.
