Much of my time in Montreal was spent sampling the top notch restaurants and enjoying the amazing cuisine this city had to offer, so a run up to the top of Mont Royal on Monday morning was dual purpose... first, it afforded great views of the city below and secondly, it enabled me to fit in a lunch of poutine...

We decided to walk to Mont Royal after our Mile End Food Tour! We walked up to the Chalet Lookout, all 380 steps! We were able to see a beautiful autumn view of Montreal! We were celebrating our 30th anniversary, with a trip to Montreal, and we could not miss this!

While the view from Mont Royal is Panaromic and indeed one can make out the different landmarks of the city, it was not very impressive. May be a better idea would be to spend a few hours to walk in the area than just see the view...

I visit here every time I am in Montreal. Fortunately I have always had great clear skies so the views were fantastic. Start with breakfast in the Plateau area of Montreal then walk up Rue Rachel to the statue of Cartier and follow the road to the top. When at the top make sure to go to the park over... More

Brilliant place to visit in fall. Magnificient show of colours. This place has a huge cemetery and also offers city views from a height. Also located near is St.Joseph's oratory.

Great giant park in the middle of the city. It is only a 10-20 min walk from many of the downtown hotels and free to access. The whole park is great to walk around in but the main attraction is the Chalet lookout. From the Rue Peel entrance, you can get up there in about 15 min. The hike is... More

It depends of the time of year really. In the fall, the changing leaves make for a nice walk. In the winter, you can do some ice skating, or bask in the sun when the summer hits on a grassy knoll by the lake.

Great place to get a beautiful view of Montreal. During the day it is really busy but when the sun sets its a romantic place to watch the city lights and enjoy a much more quite atmosphere. Just loved it! It's a beautiful park as well.
