To be in Montreal and don’t see this great city from the top of the Montreal Tower was no option for us. When you visit the big city to see it from bird's-eye view is the must. You can see all major city’s buildings, landmarks and architecture at the same time. Montreal Tower is the tallest inclined tower in the world at 175 metres (574 ft).
We were surprised that even on long week-end Sunday and perfect weather if was just few people that wanted to get to the top of the Tower and no line-ups at all. We jumped in first funicular and it took us to the top of the Montreal Tower, where we could admire the city and its surroundings. On the top of the Tower it is just a small room with big windows. There is no cafe or restaurant there, only a souvenir boutique.
The views of Montreal was breathtaking, especially St. Lawrence River and the bridges. We bought few t-shirts for Teddy and went down. Walking in Olympic Park we felt like we went back in 1976. I think it was nice place to visit, no line-ups and lots of parking spots in the underground parking lot.
Everything changed in one moment as soon as we crossed Sherbrooke Street and approached Montreal Botanical Garden entrance. There was a long line-up just to buy tickets. We didn’t have too much time left and just walked in the Parc Maisonneuve enjoying nice and sunny day and had a picnic there.
It was our last day in Montreal. We were feeling so welcome and comfortable in Montreal. Streets were filled with music and spectacular performances. May be it was just for a short period of time and visitors impressions, but in Montreal you feel like you jump into a whirl of dance and can't stop.
