Goodbye Montréal, hello Toronto!

Today is my last day in beautiful Montréal. I had to check out of my hotel at 12pm and after that had no more wifi so yes I did go to the airport 5 hours early for this reason. I thought I'd write a post featuring the favourite parts of my holiday and a list of places to go should you ever find yourself in Montréal with nothing to do.

The Notre-Dame Basilica
The most beautiful basilica I've ever set foot in located in Old Montreal. It is also the church Celine Dion got married in for you fans out there! 

Mary, Queen of the World Cathedral
Another very beautiful cathedral located downtown Montreal. 

Marché Atwater
One of Montreal's popular markets selling lots of fresh produce as well as cheese, meats, breads and maple syrup!

Jean-Talon Marché
Another one of Montreal's markets slightly bigger than Atwater. I found that this one sold more fruits and vegetables and was slightly less organised but both markets give you a good feeling for life in Montreal.

Café Chat L'Heureux
It's a café where you can eat with cats playing, sleeping and running around you. What more is there to say?

A tiny Japanese restaurant with home-cooked Japanese food located on Saint Catherine's. There's usually a queue outside so that speaks for it self really. It honestly had the best ramen I'd ever eaten.

Rue Saint-Paul
A beautiful street located in Old Montreal with a cobblestone path. You can take some great photos here as well as visit the Bonsecours Markets.

Montréal Old Port
I came during the winter time so it was mostly frozen but it was still a nice walk. You can see the Jacques Cartier Bridge as well as the Ecosphere. During the summer it would have been absolutely beautiful.
