I've always wanted to visit, so how do I get to Montreal?

Getting a cheap flight to Montreal is easy. The P. E. Trudeau International Airport in Montreal is located 25 kilometres west of the city, and is accessible by taxi, limousine, or L'Aerobus which runs between the city centre and the airport every 30 minutes, and is free for in-transit passengers if your connecting flight is in less than 15 hours.

The airport is wheelchair friendly and offers a wide range of conveniences including telephone and Wi-Fi access, with foreign exchange counters, ATM cash machines and other amenities located throughout. VIP lounges are available, and the Montreal Airport Hilton Hotel hosts business and conferencing facilities for up to 600 delegates.

What forms of transport are available for getting around Montreal?

With around 30 kilometres of underground walkways in Montreal, it is easy to explore the city, either by foot (if you don't mind the exercise), or via the metro rail system or the bus services which are linked to the underground pedestrian network.

Montreal's slogan regarding public transport is good advice ‚'It's smarter to take the bus/metro'. Parking in Montreal can be tricky, so if you're just visiting, hail a taxi, or use the underground walkways as they link up to public transport and major tourism sites, have many shopping and dining options, and are easy to navigate.

So, what should I see and do? What attractions does Montreal offer?

Old Montreal's historical charm is yours to explore, and the best way to see it all is to take a 90-minute guided walking tour. The tours depart from outside the Notre-Dame Basilica boutique, though you'll need a reservation. For the brave of heart, a night-time guided ghost walk is available, and is a most fascinating and educational insight into the rich history of this quarter.

Montreal is a city of cathedrals, and the architecture alone is worth the day out to see them. The most famous is the Basilique Notre-Dame-de-Montreal, well known for its grand architecture, and there are several others to visit in various quarters of the city.

I've heard the shopping and nightlife in Montreal is world class. Is it true?

Absolutely! The shopping options in Montreal are numerous, but you'll want to start downtown. This busy district has everything you'd expect to find in the middle of a city, with fashion, food and entertainment shops, restaurants, cafes, theatres, cinemas and department stores. The Atwater Markets located near the Lachine canal have gourmet food galore, and the Marche Bonsecours on St. Paul Street East is a showcase for artisans, artists and designers, and comes highly recommended.

The Underground Pedestrian Network houses hundreds of shops, and your flight to Montreal will be incomplete without an afternoon or evening wander. Particularly in winter, as it's a warm haven from the cold outside!
