Montreal – Canada’s second largest city – is famous for being Le Petit Europe in North America. It has a wonderfully diverse mix of the old and the new, merging picturesque 18th century architecture of Old Montreal with contemporary design, like the gorgeous Canal de Lachine.

You may begin your day in the eclectic shops and unique restaurants on St. Laurent and end the day embracing the sunset from the views of the magnificent Parc du Mont Royal. While our visit was a short weekend, I quickly fell for the friendly and quirky Montrealites who definitely know how to live the good life, as evident in their priority for beautiful design and high-quality food.
