    My wife and I are vacationing in Montreal from the 23rd to the 27th, and I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for things to do, places to eat, etc.

    We'll be staying in Downtown Montreal, and will be relying on public transit and our feet to get around. My wife speaks a little French, but we're pretty much going to have to stick to bilingual parts of town.

    Suggestions?

    Visiting the Old port and Old Montreal is a must. The Oratoire St-Joseph (big church) is quite a site too, Mount Royal, There's a lot of museums you can visit.

    As for restaurants, on St-Laurent Blvd or Crescent, you'll find some good ones

    Unfortunately, i think most festivals are over by the time you'll be in town.

    As for getting around... Public transport is good, you should maybe also check if you're able to get a pass for Bixi (the public biking service)

    And dont worry about not speaking French... Montreal is fully bilingual city so you shouldnt have any problems anywhere

    Shopping in the underground city, the botanical gardens, the Biodome, etc.

    And, for the record, the city's pretty bilingual, so finding someone who speaks English shouldn't be a problem. You might have trouble in Quebec City, but not in Montreal.

    I think the Biodome is still closed due to the city worker pressure tactics.
