About the City
Montreal is a very reachable destination with direct flights from most major international destinations and it’s just an hour north of the US border. Getting around the island is very easy with various modes of public transport ranging from bicycle rentals to tech-driven transport at your disposal.
In the middle of the city stands the Mont Royal Mountain – from where the city gets its name. The city prides itself on its rich European heritage, made obvious by the cobble-stone streets and 18th century buildings in the old town, while downtown Montreal has developed into a hip and trendy scene.
The city operates in both English and French, but it’s cuisine and culture is strongly influenced by its multicultural population. This year Montreal turns 375 and there are various celebrations that take place around the city throughout the year.
