Hoping to purchase a couple of 1-day passes, we were disappointed to discover that the station where we boarded the Metro didn't sell the passes, so we had to settle for purchasing a couple of tickets each. Trust us, Montreal's Metro system is one of the most efficient ways of getting around the city, with stops at most of the major spots, links to many of the hotels, and of course Metro stations located in the underground mall areas.
After almost two hours of Metro hopping, we exited in Quartier Latin (the Latin Quarter) and walked around a bit.
A few weeks before coming here, we had seen a program about Montreal on the Travel Channel that mentioned Rue St.-Denis as the Francophone avenue where French-speaking nationals like to hang out, so we were intrigued to be walking down that very street. As we continued traveling down the avenue, we admired the architecture of the old buildings and the liveliness of the neighborhood.
Rounding the corner onto Rue Sherbrooke, we looked ahead a few blocks to see the Hyatt Hotel. How do ya like that! We weren't very far from our hotel afterall. This city is pretty easy to navigate. So we stolled through the Latin Quarter back to our home base to rest our tired toes. We had all intentions of going back out to experience Montreal's night life, but we grew lazy after a light dinner and decided to call it a night.
