In this final episode of my trip to Montreal on the eve of its 375th Birthday, I try to pretend I can master the elite sport of ice canoeing. I stay at a excellent property in the heart of Old Montreal, and I recommend some especially good restaurants I in which I dined.
The Museum of Archeology and the Museum of fine Art should be must dos if you go to Montreal. On my recent visit I went to both and interviewed representatives from each. Hear about both of these exceptional cultural stops on this podcast.
The year 2017 will be a 12 month series of celebrations as the great city of Montreal parties from beginning to end. It has been 50 years since the World Exposition of 1967 changed Montreal forever. It’s Canada’s 150 since Confederation, and 375 years since the founding of Montreal.
On this Montreal day we discouvered a number of areas of the city. Going back to the place of Expo67 was emotional, and the view from the mountain was spectacular.
Always one of my favourite Canadian cities I am back on a December media trip on the eve of celebrations of its 375th year since its founding. I start off with a bit of a pilgrimage to the deli my favourite song writer Leonard Cohen often escaped to when he wanted to go back to another time.
