Montréal/Québec City Vacation Part 2

October 2, 2014

Missed Part 1?

Bonjour mes amies! I will be taking a mini hiatus from Tasty Thursday to wrap up my Montréal and Québec City recaps.  

The first few days in Montréal were spent exploring the historic city center.  Afterwards we traveled a bit outside of the city to explore the Jean-Talon Public Market, the Olympic Stadium (the city hosted the 1976 Summer Olympics), the Botanical Gardens, the Biodome, and Mount Royal Park. Below is a cute sign that was in their metro.

For this trip we did not rent a car and used public transportation for the entire time we were there.  The metro was easy to use and we purchased a multi-day fare card.  Below is the main artery of the Jean-Talon Public Market.

The market is huge and I would highly recommend visiting it.  We purchased a few peaches and nectarines for snacks.  Several of the vendors had samples you could try.

The Olympic Stadium, Botanical Gardens, and the Biodome are located off the same metro stop so you can definitely visit all places in one day.  The Botanical Gardens was definitely one of my favorite parts of the trip.

Before we headed to Québec City we went to Mount Royal Park where we took a 30-40 minute hike to this view point.

Downtown Montreal – beautiful!

Have you visited an Olympic Stadium before?

Do you have a favorite farmers market in your area?
