So here we are, wrapping up our first of four weeks in Montréal. Honestly we were not quite sure what to expect once we got here. All I am going to say is we are having a wonderful time. The people have been incredibly friendly and helpful. As well, the architecture and history are fantastic. As you can see above we checked out the sight of the 1967 World Expo. The dome is a great landmark for a lovely park and obviously an impressive facility for holding festivals and events.
We utilized our transit passes and headed north to check out little Italy. What a find. Originally we were heading there to see the Jean-Talon Market. It was good, but what was better was the restaurant we found for lunch.
The hot spring weather is making it very easy to have a great first impression of Montréal. In addition to the architecture and history there are also restaurants and patios on nearly every corner which allow for fantastic people watching. We are also loving being able to venture to any corner of the city on the transit system, which is the best one we have encountered in Canada so far.
Dam sure beats the wind of the coast.
Looks like a place to put on the visit list !
make sure you eat lots of bagels, have a shop at Adonis, and eat at Avesta on St. Catherine’s for me.
Bagels are definitely on our list. We will check those places. Thanks for the suggestions.
