If you’re planning a trip to Montreal, and wonder what there is to do, visit and how long is the perfect duration – keep reading! 😉
During your vacation to Montreal, don’t forget to visit Quebec City!
That can k 2-3 days in Montreal and 2-3 days in Quebec City will give you a great experience. I strongly recommend time in the Laurentian region, just northwest of Montreal – less than an hour away).
Last summer, I took my family on an 8 day trip and we did Montreal for 3 nights, Quebec City for 2 days/1 night – the Laurentians for 3 nights, and a final day and one night in Ottawa, before heading back to the Montreal airport.
May through September is the best time to visit – and try to avoid December – February – it’s really, really cold (and snowy) and often quite gray.
But to answer your question about Montreal – 3 full days will give you a good sense of the city, and if you have more time – add the above-mentioned destinations.
