Dear participants

Montreal, and Quebec are great places to visit. Several companies offer bus tours and walking tours in Montreal. In Montreal you have several museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts with a great exhibition about Pompeii. You can visit the campuses of the four universities in the city using the metro system. The city has a large park, the Mont-royal Park situated on the hills of the city, where you can walk for hours. You can also shop on Ste. Catherine Street, a few blocks from the Hotel. Similarly, you can visit Old Montreal, less than a mile from the Hotel.

In a one-day tour, it would be wonderful to go to the City of Québec (top 2 among the best cities to visit in Canada), the only fortified city in the country, only three hours on train, bus or car. Or you may visit Ottawa, the national capital of Canada, two hours by train, bus or car from Montreal. The train station is two blocks from the Hotel.

Ask the Hotel concierge or visit the sites montrealsightseeing@coachcanada.com or www.grayline.com/montreal

We look forward to see you in Montreal
