The best of Montreal: Where to go, eat, and stay

Montreal is about as close as you can get to Europe without leaving the North American continent. Considered the cultural capital of Canada, Montreal is famous for its French cuisine, sophisticated fashion, underground city, and plethora of attractions—not to mention its frigid winters.
