**Climb Mont Royal! A mount located in the heart of Montreal is an amazing green space with a beautiful city view at the top!

**A booming downtown with Skyscrapers, McGill University, Churches, and Museums! Also check out our 30 km underground city of arcades and malls, allowing comfortable walking and shopping when the weather is foul.
