The Plateau Mont-Royal
A borough which can easily be recognized by its colorful houses, coffee shops, book shops, and overall great vibes, is known for a number of local stores and restaurants which are strongly engraved in the borough's roots, such as Schwartz's Deli (famous for its smoked meat), Patati Patata (for its delicious classic poutine), and Eva B. (thrift store).
An area that has an architectural style dating back to 1685, gives visitors the chance to see what Montreal was like before and how much the city has grown since then. A stop at the Basilique Notre-Dame is a must for most tourists, who can have the opportunity to admire the building's beautiful stain-glass windows and enjoy a moment of peace within the walls of the church. Tourists can then head over to the historic Place Jacques-Cartier and settle down at one of its terraces, where they can find a number of street artists and portrait painters.
The Mile End
An absolute must-see! Boasting a vibrant art scene and a wide range of fascinating restaurants and bars, it's not surprising that Mile End was named one of the coolest neighborhoods in the world.
A charming residential neighborhood where you will always feel welcome. Its old-school cafes, pizzerias, and other places relating to Italian culture are what make Little Italy so great. Within the borough is located the famous Jean-Talon Market, which is filled with people year-round buying and selling flowers, produces, and hot meals.
The heart of the city's LGBT+ community. This borough is an amazing place to visit, especially during the summer when St. Catherine Street becomes filled with various colors and decorations. The Village also holds a number of parades including Montreal's Pride festival and Montreal's international arts festival.
