A Day in Montreal

Last week I went to Ottawa (see thread here http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1073815) and also took a day trip to Montreal. Montreal is the largest city in the province of Quebec and the second largest in Canada. It is about a 2 hour drive from Ottawa.

We start in Old Montreal.

Take a look at my flickr account in my signature for the rest of the Montreal photos, as well as tons of Ottawa, Toronto and New York photos.

Love the pictures of this fantastic city. I would love to visit Montreal sometime, such a contrast between the modern skyscraper look and the older continental-European look. A fascinating place!
