The Gardens of Light is a must see, so beautiful! The rest of the gardens are lovely too. I've never been to a botanical garden that wasn't free before this, but it is definitely worth the money (about $30 including the biodome from memory). We went to see the gardens in the afternoon, went out and had dinner, then came... More

We try to go to a Botanical Garden every time we go on vacation. The Jardin Botanique was really nice. We didn't know what to expect in the middle of September but there were lots of flowers blooming and it was a lovely walk. They have cafeteria style food which was very good actually.

We went to the Montreal Botanical Gardens yesterday and we had such a great time there. They are open everyday from 9:00am to 9:00pm. The entrance fee is $19,75 per adult and it is really worth it! They are very big and you can see a lot of different gardens: Japanese, Chinese, Roses, First Nation, Arboretum, Innovations... Beautiful trees and... More

A fall evening spent marvelling at the beautiful display of lighted lanterns. So beautiful and magical. A must see if you have a few hours one evening. It is not just a few paper lanterns hanging in the trees. It is quite spectacular.

Best afternoon spent in a long time. Walked many miles and saw thousands of beautiful plants. Ran into a tame fox. Had lunch there.

We visited these gardens by default as there was nothing else open on a Monday in Montreal. Neither my husband nor I keen on gardens so we were very pleasantly surprised to enjoy these gardens so much. My particular favourite was one of the hothouses which specialised in spices, explaining how they grew and their uses. There was also a... More

Thank God we came here - I was pretty sick of the traffic, sirens etc. of the city. Could not have been lovelier, and this was early fall- we still saw many blooming flowers. There is a lot of walking here to really see most of it, so take your time. We walked up from the Biodome and it is... More

I love visiting the garden a few times a month and see the changes from week to week. The gardens are extensive and if it is a rainy day you have a few hours of wandering through the greenhouses. In the summer months you can also look forward to some outdoor concerts. Some of my favourite gardens are the: Underwoods,... 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.
