Montreal effortlessly combines French delicacies with European architecture and Canadian friendliness. Its namesake, Mount Royal is a triple-peaked hill in the middle of the city, so it's literally the city's heart and focal point. After Paris, Montreal is the world's second-largest predominantly French-speaking city. However, nearly 60 percent of the population speak both French and English. Montreal's city center perfectly marries old and new architecture, as you have skyscrapers overshadowing Old (Vieux) Montreal, the city's historic district. Established in the mid-17th century, make time to step inside Notre Dame Basilica and Marche Bonsecours, a local-focused shopping destination.
