Hipmunk City Love: Top Airbnb Destinations in Montreal

Montreal is a popular destination in Quebec, fusing the historic charm of Europe with the laid-back culture of North America. With a collection of unique neighborhoods, you can get lost in the city for days. Stroll down cobblestone streets or take refuge in the old European-style cathedrals. Participate in the thriving young nightlife for which the city is famous and sample myriad cuisines like French, Italian and Japanese food or the famous Montreal smoked-meat sandwiches. If you prefer more outdoor activities, you can enjoy the Old Port waterfront or the huge Parc du Mont-Royal, which features Mont Royal, the large hill for which the city is named. With prices that are somewhat high compared to other North American cities, try an Airbnb Destination in Montreal to save a few extra bucks.
