Montréal - Québec's largest city is on an island where the Ottawa River flows into the Saint Lawrence River in Canada's southeast.

Montréal is home to the Montréal Symphony Orchestra, the Grands Ballets Canadiens & the Cirque du Soleil.

The main downtown heart of Montréal is south of Mont Royal, with Rue Sainte Catherine, the main shopping street, running east to west through its centre.

East of the mountain is the chic district of Plateau Mont Royal, with its fabulous 19th-century architecture & hopping nightlife.

Running north-south through the district is the busy Rue Saint Denis & the Boulevard Saint Laurent, known as 'The Main'. Its restaurants, history & ethnic mix make it one of Montréal's best-known streets. 

South towards the Saint Lawrence River is the historic heart of the city, the Vieux (Old) Montréal. 

Directly to the east of downtown is the French-flavored Quartier Latin.
