First visit to Montreal and Quebec City

Jump to last reply

Any guidance for reasonably priced accommodation for seniors traveling by train to these cities. Also places of interest to view. Where best to eat, my wife is not a meat eater. I eat anything good.

    If you do a search back on this forum you'll find a ton of info on both of these cities. We visit Montreal about 2-3 times a year, and what we usually do is stay at a b&b in the Plateau area. The Plateau area is the most French section of the city, with lots of cafes, byob restaurants (many with outdoor dining), clubs, parks, quiet streets and several Metro stops. I'm not sure what you consider reasonably priced, but a nice b&b will run about $110 a night with full breakfast. The other options would be a chain hotel in the downtown district, which might run $150-200 a night, or one of the botique hotels in Old Montreal which typically run over $200 a night. All three of these areas are safe, fun and interesting. As for dining, what we usually do is get a bottle of wine and peruse the intersting byob restaurants in the area of St. Denis and Duluth (plateau) - lots of choices - Italian, French, Asian, Greek, etc,etc. Montreal is rich with good restaurants evrywhere throughout the city. As for things to see, Montreal is not really known for world class sights, but the Notre Dame Basillica, The Fine Arts Museum, and the Botannical Gardens would be high on my list. Montreal is really a city for strolling, sitting in cafes, shopping and soaking in the continental ambiance.
    I haven't been to Quebec City in several years, but again we usually opt for a b&b in the heart of the walled city, like the James Thompson. Quebec also has some good dining, but not nearly as varied as Montreal. For meat free, you might consider one of the Creperies. Quebec City is extremely picturesque, nearly every corner in the walled city is a photo-op.
    For a fun, interesting meat free lunch there is a chain of vegetarian cafeterias in both cities - Le Commensal. They are quite upscale and comfortable for a cafeteria, and offer every concievable kind of meat free foods - Mexican, Italian, Asian, etc.
