Montreal: The Unknown City is part of our best-selling series of urban city guides. As one of North America's most popular travel destinations, Montreal is world renowned for its European style, countless festivals, scintillating nightlife, and world-class cuisine. But with more than 350 years of history, Canada's original megalopolis conceals more than its share of little-known charms.
Montreal: The Unknown City offers a lesser-known take on remarkable places, wide-open spaces, and world-famous faces that make the city and district unique. A fun-filled resource for visitors and locals alike, its ten sections are packed with notorious scandals, strange-but-true anecdotes, and indiscreet facts. From whispered-about cycling paths to cut-rate shopping, astonishing eateries and skinny dipping, this book has Montreal uncovered.
Fact-filled, funny, and fearless, Montreal: The Unknown City showcases the island metropolis from a one-of-a-kind perspective.
Two-colour throughout, with more than 150 black and white photographs.
Part tourist reference, part compendium of lore, Montreal is a witty, engrossing addition to the innovative series of guidebooks published by Vancouver's Arsenal Pulp Press.
Here is an excellent key to the city that not just visitors but many Montrealers will want to have.
-The National Post
. . . this book is as useful to locals as it is to tourists. . .
-The Globe & Mail
Whether you are a first time visitor to Montreal or a native, you will definitely garner precious information after reading this book. Highly recommended.
The authors' wonky spin on things local is not only useful but hugely entertaining.
[I] wholeheartedly recommend this book, which says a lot about this city you won't find anywhere else, both for tourists and residents. Tourists will get a great introduction, and locals will discover new dimensions to old places.
-Montreal Review of Books
. . . a new, more charasmatic guide to Montreal's lesser-known places and people. . .
