The Montrealers, warm and often polyglot, are happy to start the conversation, just to get to know each other better.

Canada’s Chocolate Capital
More than merely the second-largest city in Canada, Montreal is at the heart of Canada’s chocolate craze. Home to the only “chocolate academy” in the country, amateurs and professionals alike gather in the city to improve their craft with help from confectionary scientists and master chocolatiers. Bringing even more cocoa aficionados to this corner of Canada is an annual chocolate trade show that draws over 10000 people to the city each year. Add to that the scores of chocolate shops and cafes that showcase the region’s sweetest cuisines and it’s no wonder Montreal’s residents have earned a reputation for their undying chocolate affection. Luxury European chocolates are especially sought after for use as high end gifts both among family and friends and for professional occasions and corporate gifts.

Gourmet Gifts for All Seasons
Although any discussion of Canadian weather almost always dwells on the country’s characteristically cold snowy winters, Montreal’s climate boasts four distinct seasons. And while their winters may indeed be wet and chilly, their summers offer compensating warmth. In fact, Montreal is the only city in Canada to have hosted the Summer Olympics, which it did in 1976. Whatever the weather, zChocolat offers a wide range of gourmet gifts perfect for every season of the year. Oversized chocolates and colorful chocolate hearts are favorites from the Romantic Collection each Valentine’s Day, while sunkissed Pates de Fruits and citrusy Orangettes steal the show with the approach of spring. zBar collection and creamy nougats capture the coziness of a Canadian autumn, while an extensive Christmas Collection showcases zChocolat’s most requested recipes in special seasonal packaging. And thanks to a wide range of customization options, including the ability to add a personalized image or photo to the lid, engrave the recipient’s name on the front, or hand select individual recipes for an assortment, suddenly any occasion can be uniquely celebrated with a box of France’s finest chocolates. Add to that package tracking, signature on delivery, delivery confirmation, and world class customer service and there’s never been an easier way to pamper someone special in The City of Saints.

Montreal is the second most populous city in Canada. It is located mainly on the fluvial island of Montreal, on the St. Lawrence River (between Quebec City and Lake Ontario) in the southern part of the province of Quebec, of which it is the metropolis. By 2016, the city had more than 1.7 million inhabitants and its urban area (called the Montréal Metropolitan Area) more than 4 million, or about half the population of Quebec. Montréal is the 19th most populous city in North America. Montreal is the most populous French-speaking city in North America and is considered to have the second largest French-speaking population in the world after Paris. Approximately 50% of Montreal's population is mother tongue French, 13% English and 33% non-English, making it one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world.
Montreal is part of the St. Lawrence Lowlands ecoregion, a vast valley between the Appalachian Mountains and Laurentians, stretching along the St. Lawrence River. The highest point on the island, Mount Royal, one of the Montérégie hills, measures 234 metres from the city centre. Municipal zoning ensures that no building exceeds this height for aesthetic reasons[desired reference]. The historic centre of the city, also known as Old Montreal, is located on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, a few kilometres downstream of the Lachine Rapids. The hypercentre, with its skyscrapers, is located nearby, on a terrace between the river and the southern slope of Mount Royal.
The Old Montreal
Old Montreal is also an opportunity to discover many nice little streets. It's fantastic, because this part of the city mixes the very recent with the authentic. By going to Old Montreal, you will be able to walk for a few hours in each street that has its own charm. You can first go to the Notre Dame Basilica, near the Place d' Armes Station. This last one is worth the detour, from inside and outside! You can also visit the Bonsecours market, which deserves a good look. We also recommend that you visit Place Jacques Cartier, which is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful squares, if not the most beautiful square in town. In the summer, you will see a large number of singers and entertainers who will make you clap their hands.
Climbing Mount Royal (Le Belvedere)
Designed by Frederick Law Olmstead (the same landscape architect who designed New York's Central Park), the mountain park in the heart of the city is Montreal's most emblematic landmark - and the most popular place to take a self-portrait. Meet at the Belvedere at the summit of Mount Royal using the stairs or with a guided tour. In the chalet at the top, visitors will find toilets and a small canteen for refreshments. Treat yourself to an invigorating two hours.
Taste the typical Montreal cuisine
Small restaurants and good food are part of Montreal's joie de vivre. Bite your teeth in a delicious smoked meat sandwich with world-renowned Schwartz deli meats. Find out why Montrealers love their wood-baked bagels at the bakeries on Fairmont or Saint-Viateur streets. (HINT: Bagels are soaked in honey water before cooking). Taste our famous poutine at La Banquise. Then quench your thirst with a locally produced beverage, such as Rise Kombucha or 1642 Cola.
Shopping on Sainte-Catherine Street
Among the longest shopping streets in Canada, Sainte-Catherine Street is the perfect place to shop around and spoil yourself. You'll find international fashion pillars such as Gap, Victoria Secret and H&M. But don't miss regional retailers such as Montreal leather goods store M0851, Little Burgundy and its coolest footwear selection as well as the popular department store Simons and its wide range of products.
Climbing to Saint Joseph's Oratory
Saint Joseph is often considered the saint of daily life. It is not every day, however, that you can visit one of the most popular Catholic pilgrimage sites in the world. Saint Joseph's Oratory is one of Montreal's masterpieces - the resistance piece in the city of a thousand bell towers. The oratory houses a magnificent Rudolf von Beckerath organ, which is ranked among the ten most prestigious in the world. Also, the immense dome of the basilica reaches 97 meters which places it in the second row after the dome of St Peter's Basilica in Rome. Temporary exhibitions are offered throughout the year. Take the metro to Côte-des-Neiges station, then walk up the famous staircase of the oratory.
Explore the Underground Montreal
Montréal has a vast underground pedestrian network that includes, to be exact, 32 kilometres (20 miles) of interrelated crossings. During the winter months, approximately 500,000 people travel there every day to access offices, stations, shops and restaurants. Called RÉSO, this system connects the city's convention centre, ten major hotels and several shopping centres.
Montreal, ville créative
Montreal is a creative city. Visitors who are fond of art will appreciate the many museums and galleries that present historical and contemporary works. One of the most important institutions in North America, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is the stopover for art lovers. Its many rooms contain paintings, sculptures, graphic art, photography and decorative art, and the gallery is proud to present world-class temporary exhibitions. For a more modern approach, visit Canada's first museum dedicated exclusively to contemporary art. The Museum of Contemporary Art has a permanent collection as well as many multimedia events. Finally, the Phi Centre presents art in all its forms. Consult the schedule for a list of shows.
Head east for a feast of attractions
The Hochelaga-Maisonneuve neighbourhood in eastern Montreal has many impressive attractions - all within walking distance of each other. First of all, the Olympic Stadium is an impressive reminder of the 1976 Summer Games that went down in history, and undoubtedly the most recognizable architectural structure in the entire city. At the inclined tower of the stadium (even larger than the leaning tower of Pisa), visitors can take an elevator for a panoramic view of the urban landscape. There is also the world-renowned Montreal Botanical Garden, which has seasonal facilities such as the popular Chinese Lantern Festival in the fall months. And, last but not least, the Biodome, where there are five ecosystems with more than 250 different species of animals that children will love.
