Cosmopolitan and charming, Montréal offers students the chance to enjoy stunning landscapes, delicious food and a whole host of festivals. Being the second largest French-speaking city in the world, Montréal is a slice of Europe across the pond in Canada. After lectures, wander along stunning cobbled streets and 18th century buildings in Old Montréal. Then cycle across the picturesque Canal de Lachine and explore the breathtaking Basilique Notre-Dame. Over summer there are more than 100 festivals, most of them free, which has helped the city gain the reputation as an arts centre. In fact, follow the Luminous Pathway to cultural hotspots in the Quartier des Spectacles, a neighborhood with the highest concentration of arts venues in North America. With its wealth of bars and exciting eateries, the city has grown into one of the most cutting edge metropolises on the globe - watched over by the breathtaking Mont Royal hill.
