Setting sail from Montréal

Bilingual Montréal is Québec's largest city, a vibrant island metropolis with a distinctive blend of old style European charm and thrusting modernity. Architectural highlights include the beautiful Basilique Notre-Dame-de-Montréal, and the city also boasts the world's third largest botanical garden. Winters here can be harsh, but in summer the city comes alive with festivals, including the famous International Jazz Festival in June/July. Montréal is also a real Mecca for foodies, and can pose a serious threat to the waistline, with all manner of gastronomic treats on offer.

Don't miss

The onomatopoetic Tam Tam day if you’re around on a Sunday during the summer – go to Mont-Royal park to see, and hear, the drums.

Arriving in Tampa

The Tampa Bay area of Florida is home to some of the finest beaches in the USA, as well as a host of cultural attractions. The city of Tampa itself may not be the main draw, but it still has some interesting sights, including historic Ybor City, Tampa's atmospheric Latin Quarter. The neighbouring city of St. Petersburg is home to the excellent waterfront Salvador Dalí Museum, and Sarasota's Ringling Museum of Art also hosts some interesting exhibitions. Other attractions in the area include Busch Gardens, a world class zoo and adventure park that provides great family entertainment.

Our tip

This is a great destination for families, but otherwise the Mundy advice is to give it a miss – Sarasota is perhaps a better option.

Stop sign in Montréal

Making the most of Montréal

You don’t need to take a private tour in Montréal, the city is completely manageable and although signs are in French, everyone speaks English.

Loews Don Cesar Hotel, St Petersburg

Tampa Bay accommodation

Stay in St Petersburg rather than Tampa itself – try the Pink Palace, as the Don CeSar is known.
