Montreal and Quebec City are like outposts of European culture in the heart of Canada just hours from the US, distinctively Canadian but with a palpable French spirit. The Rough Guide to Montreal takes you through everything in great detail, providing informative and entertaining accounts of what the city has to offer in terms of attractions, restaurants, accomodation and its vibrant nightlife. There is extensive coverage of Quebec City, as well as the snow-capped peaks of the Laurentian Mountains and Eastern Townships, all accessible day-trips from Montreal. In each chapter there are detailed maps and plans covering every neighbourhood. The contexts section includes a useful French language section and glossary.
