Cutting edge, electrifying and cosmopolitan - Montreal is a city on the rise. Its cultural wealth and diversity have made it one of North America’s top tourist destinations. But how many visitors leave Montréal without having left the Old Town, explored some of the city’s more picturesque areas or tasted its famous Saint-Viateur bagels? To make the most of the warmth and passion of this unique city, Ulysses shines a light on these sights and establishments located off the beaten track, making the Ulysses Guide to Montréal the perfect companion for anyone who wishes to see and know everything about the city.
Every aspect of this new guide has been rethought and redesigned to enhance the Montréal experience. The improved guide now features 20 different tours of the various parts of the city, with reviews of over 75 hotels, 270 restaurants and 80 nightclubs.
