Love is in the air

Montréal : a romantic trip, days and nights

Romantic dinners and walks in the park are only a fraction of Montréal's romance realm for couples. Quaint cobblestone streets, cozy boutique hotels and that one-of-a-kind French-Canadian style make the city North America’s romance capital, a hotbed of charm. Romantic subtleties permeate the city. At Hôtel Nelligan, the walls are adorned with poetry. In winter, couples can ice skate in Parc La Fontaine to the soundtrack of classical music. Heck, we even have a restaurant called LOV. That said, the best romantic discoveries are the ones we can’t plan for you. They’re the unplannable moments, when the city lights are reflected in the eyes of your sweetheart and the city feels like the setting of a romantic film. But it’s not La La Land — it’s Montréal.
