Completely revised and updated guide to Québec's two distinctly different cities
Montréal and Québec City are vibrant cultural centres, pre-eminent destinations for Canadians, Americans and Europeans alike. This new Colourguide offers updated coverage and new images of museums, galleries, heritage sites, parks and gardens.
Written entirely by local residents, this book gives readers the benefit of inside knowledge on accommodations, events, places to eat, places to shop, and places to relax. Montreal Mirror Arts Editor Matthew Woodley explores the art galleries, from the grand to the underground. Actor and film maker Paul Spence covers nightlife both on and off the beaten track, including the gay scene, as well as late-night snack spots. Sarah Musgrave, casual dining critic for the Montreal Gazette, gets to the heart of Montréal's ever-evolving Main, examining the culture, cuisine, entertainment, and shopping.
This edition features expanded coverage of Québec City. The dining section focuses on award-winning chefs who use the region's finest produce to create a distinct cuisine. The convergence of historical buildings and the modern city in Upper and Lower Towns is highlighted by local experts.
This edition is fully updated with a listings section that provides website information for travellers who like to plan on the web. Maps and colour photography illustrate an entertaining and informative text.
