We arrived in Montréal ready for a savory, fall experience. I had long wanted to visit this city, and we were able to combine a work trip with some sightseeing and relaxing. We landed in the morning and immediately set out to explore downtown and Vieux-Montréal, or Old Montréal. Strolling through the cobblestone streets after lunch made for a magical experience and a great way to get acquainted with the city.
While the photographs on this post were taken throughout our three night – four day trip, the theme is clear: vibrant orange and red trees with the religious and modern architecture of a growing city reckoning with its past. Notre Dame was stunning – just as stunning as its namesake in Paris.
On my own, I had taken the subway to St. Helen’s Island and found the Biosphere, a museum dedicated to conservation and environmentalism – amazing!
By early evening on our first day in Montréal, we made our way to an Airbnb in Gay Village that we had reserved. It was a very modern, comfortable place.
