Skyline view, Montreal, Canada
Montreal has passed from Native American to French to British and the influences of each could be seen in this district. Buildings often date back centuries. Montreal is quieter, quainter and less quick than Toronto, and is a charming city that with requires a future, longer trip to soak it all in. From the Mount Royal Park continue up the mountain on the Chemin Olmsted trail, past the Sculpture Garden, the Smith House Museum and to the Chalet du Mont Royal. The chalet was built in 1906 and from its steps the aerial view of Montreal is unrivaled.
