Walking through the Botanical Garden at Night was really magical. I can totally recommend visiting the garden of lights.
Taking into account that it was already October when we visited the botanical garden, there wasn't much blooming anymore.
I visited the garden in the second half of May. Spring in Canada is coming up very fast and all of a sudden everything blossomed. (Two weeks ago it was frosty and snow fell.)
At that time is the amazing Garden of shade when the...More
This place is huge & beautiful.
I brought the family here after getting a little tired from the crowds of old-town Montreal in peak-season.

My friend and I went in the winter, so the outdoor gardens were not open. However, there are around 9 different green houses inside, with different climates and types of plants. Very cool, and you learn a lot. It costs to get in, and there...More

Going hand in hand with the Insectarium, this place is the better of the two, with its thematic gardens and interesting layout. Versus everything else that we did in Montreal on our two days there there we probably liked walking around these gardens best.

Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie has one of Canada's most prominent Italian communities, with Little Italy concentrated along the convivial bends of Saint-Lawrence Boulevard. Known for its fantastic bars and authentic Italian fare, the domain includes the Jean-Talon Market, the largest public market in North America. Open year-round, sunny months see fruit and vegetable stalls set up outside the main chalet, while
blustery weather draws crowds indoors to meat and cheese sellers, spices and truffles stalls, and for regional delicacies such as rare Charlevoix lamb. While the market dictates what's fresh for local restaurateurs, visitors can please more than their palates, taking in the Renaissance architecture and frescos of Madonna della Difesa, the picturesque Rue Saint-Rominique with its cheerful homes and splendid gardens, or the ornamented thoroughfare of Plaza Saint-Hubert.
