All about Montreal

When to visit

Montreal comes to life in the summer, when the long days fill up with festivals and sun. July is the main month for festivals, but it also tends to be one of the hottest. Opt for May or June for milder weather, and to explore the Parc du Mont Royal. The St-Ambroise Montreal Fringe Festival, the Go Bike Festival, and the International Jazz Festival all take place in May and June.

Getting around

The city is well-connected by the Montreal Metro, which travels between 68 stations. It’s also perfect for biking, with 560 miles (901 kilometers) of bike lanes and routes that can take you throughout the historic city. While a car is handy for exploring the surrounding countryside, parking can be tricky within the city itself. It’s better to rely on public transport, taxis, ride-hailing services, and walking.

Traveler tips

New York City isn’t the only North American city famous for its bagels. Montreal is home to many beloved bagel shops that line its streets. The St-Viateur Bagel Shop is a favorite, and one of the best things to do in Montreal for food lovers. And while you’re in the Mile End neighborhood, try other Jewish deli favorites like smoked meat.
