|Subject: Re: Montreal|
The downtown area of Montreal is very compact for a large city- a walk along Ste. Catherine street(shopping!), Crescent St. (pubs,restaurants, street scene), Old Montreal, the Old Port(great promenade). Rue St.Laurent and St.Denis for the French flavour. As well as on Prince Arthur, there are great little restaurants on Duluth which are also "bring your own wine".
A hotel suggestion: Hotel Europa on Drummond St. which is right downtown and reasonably priced(as of 2 years ago!) http://www.europahotelmtl.com/HTML/display.html
Hope this is helpful, Annabelle and Bill, Barrie,Ontario
