We had a day of sightseeing in Montreal but could easily have done with a few more. I really only skirted around to get a feel for this beautiful city and mark out where I would like to return to when we come back from St Johns at the end of the cycling tour. My partner, Meg will also be with me so it will be great to be able the experience with her.
Mont Royal is a great place to start as it provides a great view of the city and lay of the land but I spent most of my time in the Old Montreal and Old Port area. Lots of historical buildings, restaurants, galleries, exhibitions, guided tours etc., and plenty of souvenir shops. (How do they all survive?)
