You go to a botanical gardens with an uneasiness of what 'exactly' to expect beyond the obvious. The Montreal Botanical Gardens provided a few extras to keep it entertaining as well as interesting. It's a little pricey for 'looking at plants' but related to everything you get to see and learn and the amount of time, energy and manpower to... More

We hadn't planned to visit, but was recommended at the tourist office to see the Lanterns - which was a great recommendation. We arrived during the afternoon to see some of the other features of the gardens ahead of the illuminations in the evening and were pleased we did as there is lots to see. Top attractions vary through year... More

Great and informative visit with activities year long with the early spring blooms, Halloween celebrations many greenhouses including walking with loads of butterflies and showing various habitats. Let's not forget the oriental gardens with bonsaïs and the festival of light in the fall. Kids and adults are all taken in and left in awe. Strongly recommended for everybody!

Great spot to relax in the chines or Japanese Pavillion. Lots ofthings to see and do. If you are in town for one of the events even better! Best bets: Chinese lanterns and setting the butterflies free.Check their web site. Botanical gardens Montreal.

A must when you visit the city! Beautiful gardens, special orchid greenhouses, special seasonal exhibits (pumpkin exhibit for Halloween,) Chinese gardens. Located next to the Insectarium where young and old can see an amazing collection of insects of all sorts, in summer they also have "Papillons en liberté" or Butterfly Freedom! Across the street is the Olympic Stadium built for... More

What a great way to spend an afternoon. Gardens are beautiful! You don't have to be a gardener to appreciate the spectacular gardens. They have different themes during the year. Last summer was amazing with the chinese gardens. We went in the early afternoon and stayed till they closed. The garden was lit up with beautiful lanterns and they had... More

Staying in Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie

Neighborhood Profile
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie has one of Canada's most prominent Italian communities, with Little Italy concentrated along the convivial bends of Saint-Lawrence Boulevard. Known for its fantastic bars and authentic Italian fare, the domain includes the Jean-Talon Market, the largest public market in North America. Open year-round, sunny months see fruit and vegetable stalls set up outside the main chalet, while blustery weather draws crowds indoors to meat and cheese sellers, spices and truffles stalls, and for regional delicacies such as rare Charlevoix lamb. While the market dictates what's fresh for local restaurateurs, visitors can please more than their palates, taking in the Renaissance architecture and frescos of Madonna della Difesa, the picturesque Rue Saint-Rominique with its cheerful homes and splendid gardens, or the ornamented thoroughfare of Plaza Saint-Hubert.
