Although I had little time in Montreal, I thought that this was an absolute gem. The old town is fantastic and I really enjoyed the climb up to the mountain where you have a wonderful view over the entire city. A real nice mix between old and young buildings and a real clean well maintained place.
People are very friendly and most of them speaks English, although French is their mothertongue. You can have pleasant conversations with locals in some nice pubs or on terraces next to a drink.
