Little Italy is a charming residential neighborhood full of old-school cafes, pizzerias, Italian grocery stores and traditional bakeries. The Jean-Talon Market bustles year-round with stands selling flowers, produce and hot meals. Nearby, locals play bocce in Parc Dante. The hip Mile-Ex enclave offers artisanal coffee shops, chic restaurants and bars in industrial spaces.
Montréal is the largest city in Canada’s Québec province. It’s set on an island in the Saint Lawrence River and named after Mt. Royal, the triple-peaked hill at its heart. Its boroughs, many of which were once independent cities, include neighbourhoods ranging from cobblestoned, French colonial Vieux-Montréal – with the Gothic Revival Notre-Dame Basilica at its centre – to bohemian Plateau.
