Feedback on Montreal Itinerary Please?

Jump to last reply

I'd love some feedback on this preliminary itinerary for a very short Montreal trip later this month. It will be 2 adult children and our mother, who is 70, but an active walker (though we make sure to take it easy.) Keep in mind we're not lounge at a coffee shop for 3 hours type of travelers. My mother prefers to actively be doing or seeing something, although she also enjoys people watching and beautiful scenery. Having said that, we don't plan to run around like maniacs. :) And we'll still play it by ear depending on our mood. But I do like to group sights together to be practical, while keeping other options in mind in case something else interests us.

Thursday
Arrive Montreal by plane from NY around 10am
Head over to hotel (either Embassy Suites or Springhill Suites) using taxi or bus
Lunch in Old Town and explore area
Visit Notre-Dame Basilique, Notre-Dame-de-Bonsecours Chapel
Head to Vieux Port or Pointe-a-Calliere Archaeology & History Museum? Or maybe Plateau?
If we end up in Plateau area, thought we'd have dinner there
After dinner, maybe check out free Jazz Festival goings-on closer to hotel?

Friday
Breakfast at hotel, and then head downtown
See Cathedral of Marie-Reine-du-Monde, St. Patrick’s Basilica
Museum des Beaux-Arts (opens at 11am)
Lunch near Rue St. Catherine
Head up to Mont Royal, Oratoire St. Joseph
Dinner somewhere
Something close to hotel after dinner?

Saturday
Early breakfast at hotel
Jean-Talon market – worth a visit during the hours before our train? Thought it might be fun on a busy Sat morning to buy snacks there. Or too busy and not sensible to backtrack if we already visited Plateau earlier in the trip?

1:00pm Train to Quebec City
4:00pm Arrive QC (still working on this part of the itinerary)
Check into hotel in Old Town

I considered the Botanical Gardens since she loves gardens, but I'm hesitant to take up so much time there as we just visited Hungtington Gardens & Library in Los Angeles (I realize it's not the same thing, but I'm trying to prioritize given our limited time.) Mostly we want to see some key sights while appreciating the beauty of Montreal itself.

I'd appreciate any feedback, suggestions, or "oh no, that's the worst idea ever" comments! Thanks in advance!
