Montreal & Quebec Travel Guide

Predominantly French speaking, Quebec is the largest of Canada’s provinces and is certainly one of a kind. Its capital Quebec City sits on the banks of the St Lawrence River and has a distinctly European feel to to it. With cobblestone streets and lovely historic neighbourhoods, this is a walkable city that’s been extraordinarily well preserved making it a living museum. Here you’ll find a remarkable mix of architecture, heritage, art and culture.

In contrast, the more modern city of Montreal is big and bustling with lots to see and do, from French colonial Vieux-Montreal with its Gothic Revival Notre-Dame Basilica, to the hip, trendy and artsy neighbourhood of Plateau.
