Montreal is a city that draws tourists all year round; even the extremely cold winter season can be avoided in the vast Underground City, with its large selection of restaurants, shops, and walkways. The Rialto Theatre is one of the most iconic buildings in the city, and has been recently rejuvenated following many years of lying dormant. Today the theatre is a centre for the performing arts, hosting a variety of music, plays, films and more. The Parc Jean-Drapeau was the site of the 1967 World's Fair, and is now a large park and concert venue. The park also has an artificial beach and pool complex, the Gilles Villeneuve racing circuit, not to mention the Montreal Planetarium. The truly international flavour of the city is evident in the numerous outstanding restaurants, with diverse cuisine from all over the globe.
Following your flight to Montreal, a taxi fare to and from the city centre is set at a fixed price of $40. Note that your travel time from the airport to downtown can take an hour long, depending on how heavy the traffic is.
