60-second guide to Montreal Trudeau airport

in its own head

"We offer the perfect blend of Old World charm and North American energy. Is there anywhere more culturally exciting in the world?"

but more realistically

Montreal is certainly a city of myriad influences. And, despite occasional unrest, this cosmopolitan city also manages to infuse a sense of unity among its vibrant inhabitants.

the vibe

As the second largest city in Canada, Montreal has everything you could possibly want from a metropolis. Yet there's a clean, bohemian feel to the place too.

the natives

There's no denying that Montrealers ooze a certain cool. These French-speaking urbanites live and let live, and have a refreshingly laid-back approach to life.

the weather

Montreal's icy winters make it a dream destination for anyone with a passion for skiing, snowboarding, skating or other frosty pursuits.

the local speciality

Montrealers are self-confessed foodies and poutine is the city's culinary staple. The delicious dish consists of French fries topped with fresh cheese curds and brown gravy, with a multitude of interesting variations.

the celebrity

Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton spontaneously got married here in 1964.

did you know?

Montreal receives more than two metres of snow each year - that's enough to bury your average NBA basketball player. No wonder thousands of skiers flock to the Canadian city to enjoy the powdery slopes.

they say
