FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX DU
CANADA 2017

Few places embrace their Grand Prix as enthusiastically as Montreal. The city grinds to a halt over the race weekend as fans from around the world descend on Quebec for a non-stop party. Formula One fever - street parties, driver appearances and F1 exhibitions - is focused in one area of town: Rue Ste Catherine. It is the focal point at which race fans can meet. But there is plenty to see and do elsewhere because Montreal seamlessly mixes the old with the new. There is the 400-year-old charm of 'Vieux Montreal’, which sits in surprising harmony with the grid pattern and skyscrapers of the modern city.

All air travellers - international and domestic - arrive into Montreal-Trudeau Airport, situated 22 kilometres west of the city. If you are not hiring a car, taxi rides into town take about half an hour and are inexpensive. For good shopping, lively nightlife and lots of Formula One excitement head to Rue Ste Catherine. It has an abundance of everything. Try out a restaurant called Le Queue du Cheval. Away from Ste Catherine’s, why not take in some culture? The best galleries are the Musee Des Beaux Arts and the Musee D’Art Contemporain.

The big hotel chains are located in the heart of Montreal. For budget alternatives, move towards the suburbs for the best deals - nowhere is too far away because of the convenient Metro system. The more adventurous might want to travel up the Ste Lawrence to the Great Lakes. Or check out the Aboriginal Way, which passes through stunning countryside and leads through some of the 11 linguistically and culturally different aboriginal nations in Quebec.
