An international destination of choice, Montréal is easily accessed by land, water and air. Downtown is a mere 20 minutes from the Pierre-Elliott Trudeau International Airport, which handles some 600 flights daily.
Public transit is not only affordable, it’s also a great way to get around the city. Quick, safe and clean, the metro connects downtown to major tourism attractions, as well as to numerous bus stops and train stations. In addition, cycling enthusiasts enjoy 450 kilometres of bicycle paths, many of which lead to major tourist areas.
Don’t forget to ensure you have a valid passport at all times, and in some cases, a visa. American citizens returning home should also be aware that there are new customs requirements in effect . For more information, visit the Web sites of Citizenship and Immigration Canada and the U.S. Department of State.
To finish your trip in style, take some time out to shop for gifts and souvenirs. Details on the transport of goods can be found on the Canada Border Services Agency Web site.
