For couples looking for a romantic getaway, Montreal has much to offer.

To help you plan a romantic itinerary in Montreal, here are some suggestions.
Take in the view
Located in central Montreal, the 764-foot Mount Royal is a giant hill offering a tranquil escape from the bustling city. There is the leisurely Mount Royal Park at the top, and visitors can enjoy horseback riding, picnicking, a sculpture garden and many scenic lookout points for enjoying aerial views of Montreal. The romantic Observatoire de l’Est is also a popular viewing spot for couples. To get to the top, you can take Bus 11 or opt for the gentle four-mile hike to the summit.
