What should I avoid doing while visiting Montreal Canada What are the best tourist points in Montreal

The Old Port is a must-do, especially if you enjoy walking and exploring.The area is very historic and there are tons of art galleries (stores) where you can see interesting paintings and sculptures for free.One don’t-do is eat in the Old Port, as it is generally over-priced.

There are reasonable places but they can be hard to find unless a local guides you.Do go to the top of Mount Royal – after all, the city is named after it!- for beautiful vistas of the city and the Saint Lawrence river: Do visit the iconic Gay Village to experience another interesting facet of Montreal culture: Don’t be afraid to speak English or to practice your French.

Most service industry workers speak both and are happy to accommodate.

Avoid acting being really surprised that people speck English.Though it would still be polite and appreciated if you use those magic words Merci et s’ il vous plait in French…Bonjour is nice too.

Don’t just stay in the downtown core; explore neighbourhoods like Little Italy, Mile End and Villeray.There is one little-known view I recommend if you are spending time in the Old Port.In the Musée Pointe-à-Callière, Montréal’s museum of history and archaeology, on the second floor near the Arrivage Restaurant, you will see a door marked “Belvedere” (“lookout”).

Climb the staircase and you’ll be on a narrow balcony with a stunning view.Schwartzes: Everyone goes there to eat smoked meat.There is always a line.

Cross the street and eat at The Main.
