Today, the city still feels very French with most residents speaking French as their first language. Must-sees include cobblestoned Old Montreal, with its 18th and 19th century houses and pavement cafes, the elegant downtown area and leafy Mont-Royal Park, which commands fantastic views over the city’s skyscrapers and monuments below.
