Montreal is one of the most attractive cities in North America to visit.
It is easily available from NYC, Boston, Toronto, and Washington, and is a major airline hub with flights coming from all over the world. From its earliest days, Montreal has been an attractive city to live in, and for many years was the largest urban area in Canada. The touristic focal point is the old town, called Vieux Montreal, located on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River, but the liveliest portion is closer to the current city centre north of Autoroute 720.
The Place Ville Marie and the Eaton Centre provides the main shopping experience, and nearby Chinatown offers its own unique flavour. The city’s quiet Metro system can whisk one to the Ile Ste-Helene, site of the world fair half a century ago, or to Cote des Neiges and the huge Oratory pilgrimage centre on Mont Royal.
The reverse side of the sheet, provides a handy travel map of southern Quebec, from Ottawa in the far west to the famous Gaspe Peninsula and from Baie-Comeau to the American border. This enables users two uses of the map – to see a fascinating city and to explore north into the recreational heartland of Quebec or east into the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
